Scones, scones & more scones

Time to make the doughnuts scones. 
Nope - Doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
I tried something new this time - frozen blueberries in my scones, half thawed.  I may have put in a few too many but the DH didn't think so.  I wanted to make sure there was enough dough to hold them together and there is - barely.  Due to their fragile nature, the blueberry ones are staying home with the DH.  I don't think many will be left by the time I get home Saturday evening.

I also made apricot and cranberry/orange. Hopefully this is enough for the trip. What you see here is 5 batches total. Supposedly the yield is 12 scones per batch but my cutting only got 9-10 this time.  Must be a defective knife I used.

I'm off to the Michigan House with a side trip to Shipshewana.  It's time to stock up on more fabric a few staples before the snow flies. Hoping more leaves are down so I can rake/mulch and the lawn is getting one more haircut for the year. 


  1. Enjoy your trip. The scones look lovely, defective knife and all ;-)

  2. I found you through Melody's blog and saw that you are from norther Illinois. Old like to invite you to Crystal Lake Modern Quilt Guild. Our next meeting is November 8 and Jacquie Gehrig is our guest speaker. You can find the guild on Facebook.
