Scones and winners of the colour contest


Winners of the tetley colour contest giveaway are Brenda and Krishnaveni.
I selected the winners using random.org. Congratulations.
There were so many responses that I requested and was offered 2 gift baskets instead of 1, so thank you everyone and Tetley for these wonderful gifts.

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter cut into cubes
2/3 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup milk and 1 tbsp lemon juice)
2 tbsp chocolate chip optional

Mix everything until it comes together as a dough. Put it in a floured board and roll with a floured rolling pin.
Keep folding the scones and rolling a few times this will make fluffy soft scones, don't forget this step.
Roll to 7" diameter and 1/2" thick circle, then cut into triangles. Let stand for about 10 minutes, brush with buttermilk. Bake at 400F for 15 to 20 minutes.

Put icing sugar on top and if you like put in the broiler for a minute or serve with icing sugar on top or jam in the middle.

Scones are in these events
breakfast club at fuss free flavours and fingers and toes,
cookies and cakes.
The snow picture goes to no croutons required.
