Scones and a Cup of Coffee

Ah, scones and a good cup of coffee... does it get much better? Rather than tell you about these delicious scones and deprive you of it's goodness while enjoying them all by myself I will share the recipe. Although not sharing sounds yummier right now. Ha!

Wood Family Scones (I am not sure where we actually found the recipe):

Igredients -
1 3/4 cups All- Purpose Flour
4 tsp. Baking powder
1/4 cup white sugar
1/8 tsp. Salt
5 tbsp. Butter
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1 egg
1 tbsp. milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large bowl. Mix in butter until it is in pea sized lumps. Stir in sliced almonds. Mix together 1/2 cup of milk and sour cream in measuring cup. Pour all at once into the dry ingredients, and stir gently until well blended. Overworking the dough makes the scones less yummy.
With floured hands pat scone dough into balls 2 -3 inches across, depending on what size you want. Place into a greased baking sheet, and flatten lightly. Let the scones barely touch each other. Whisk together the egg and 1 tbsp. of milk. Brush the tops of the snoces with the egg wash. Let them rest for about 10 minutes. Bake for 10-15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are golden brown. Then you can decorate with some chocolate and sliced almonds. Grab a couple, pour yourself a cup of coffee and ENJOY!

To God be the glory.
