Grandma Johnson's Scones

April 06, 2006

These are absolutely fantastic! better than starbucks! The sour cream is the star of this recipe, makes them so moist and scrumptious. I have added 1/2 c dried cranberries and 1/4 orange juice to it for orange/cranberry scones, top them with a glaze of orange zest, orange juice and confectioner's sugar and you will just die of decadence. Add some pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, glaze it with a simple confectioner's sugar and you've got a wonderful holiday (or any day) treat. Add some bacon, onion and cheese, lessen the amount of sugar and you've got a super breakfast! I have made these in huge batches and put them in the freezer for easy microwaveable breakfasts. Add some black berry's and lemon zest and there's another elegant brunch item. what a great versatile, delicious recipe! This is a permanent fixture in my recipe box! Thanks Grandma Johnson!
