I decided I wanted to try making scones this weekend.

They turned out fantastic. I got up early on Sunday and made the "dough." My son got up and helped shape, flatten, cut, bake, and made the glaze.

Basically, they're just triangle shaped baking powder biscuits with sugar and (a lot) more butter.

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk

It's been 20 + years since I lived in the Puget Sound area so I don't know if they still are but at the time scones were all the rage at the Washington State Fair held in Puyallup.

I do like scones. Blueberry or huckleberry are my favorite

My mom (Welsh) used to make them all the time, haven't had a good one since. Get some Lemon Curd and put on them if you want a real treat!

She also tried to sneak some Blancmange in on us once in a while, don't know what she was thinking...that's French!!!

That's a different type of scone.

What's a scone?
Two things.
One is a slightly sweetened fluffy biscuit, often with fruit or jam.


The other is a deep fried bread, often called "fry bread", used to make "Navajo tacos" by pouring chili on it, or served with honey butter like at the state fairs of the west.



Fancy Navajo Taco.

Dude....it's like momma's fresh baked bread, but fried. Light and fluffy inside, crispy outside, and warm so the butter melts into it.
Never had the British style, but I like biscuits, and fruit, so it can't be too bad.

I will take my bread savory, not sweet. And I also want it dense.

Krispy Kreme is a big thing here. I will admit that for a sugar rush that a hot Krispy Kreme will just melt, you don’t even have to chew it. But I literally get sick when I eat them. I will take my doughnuts cake style. Even then I dont much like them.

I eat very little bread, and when I do, it only needs 3 ingredients. Flour, baking powder, and lard. For the past while, the lard has been replaced with olive oil. But lard makes a better bread. The only sweetener you will find in the second house is honey, sometimes sourgum. You will find sugar in the main house. The girls like to drink syrup . I prefer tea, make mine unsweet please.

It's a baking powder biscuit with sugar and extra butter in the dough. Cut it into triangles instead of circles.

Some people put a sugar glaze on top, some will put jams or jellies, some will put fruit or chocolate chips into the mix prior to baking.. Basically it's a clabber-girl biscut as breakfast dessert.

They're just baking-powder biscuits with sugar and extra butter (depending on how much butter/shortening is in your biscuit recipe) in the mix. They're just as dense as any other baking powder biscuit.

Think of if mom's biscuits and Krispy Kreme's had a love-child.

I see...the fry bread type scone isn’t sweet, it’s savory, or neutral, then you make it sweet with the honey butter, and/or jam; or you make it savory with chili or whatever. Not a biscuit, it has yeast in it.

Your flour, baking powder and lard is a biscuit. And is yummy. My wife is a fan, for sure.

You can buy “Western Scone mix” in number 10 cans out here in most grocery stores. Funny thing is, unlike the home made recipes, it’s gluten free! Ingredients: Fine white rice flour, tapioca flour/starch, soybean oil, sugar, whole eggs (whole eggs, sodium silicoaluminate [as an anticaking agent]), xanthan gum, salt, modified food starch, lecithin powder (soy flour, liquid lecithin, dolomite).
