Grandma Johnson's Scones
September 13, 2006

Great recipe, just a few tips to avoid dryness and any disaster. 1. Combine the sour cream (make sure you use sour cream) and baking soda, set aside. 2. Mix the butter (make sure it is at room temperature) with the sugar (I just use 3/4 cup), 3. Beat the egg with vanilla (yes, I add 1 tsp. of vanilla) 4. Add the beaten egg to the sugar/butter mixture. 5. Add the sour cream with baking soda and mix until smooth and creamy. 6. Mix well the dry ingredients and then add them to the wet mixture, just to get everything together, do not over mix. From here, you can add as many "toppings" as you want. This are tried and tested: Chocolate chips Craisins, raisings, cherries, etc. Dried fruits such as apricots, figs or prunes (chopped in little pieces) Nuts (chopped in little pieces) I make 16 balls and press them w/ my hands to make a flat circle. Bake for 15 min. The secret with these scones is to not over mix or over handle.
