Day 3: Scone challenge

Scones!DSC06691

I got this traditional Kiwi recipe for scones from my daughter in law :
3 cups self raising flour
1 cup cream
1 cup lemonade (can use diet or almost flat lemonade too)
… pinch of salt.
Mix lightly, press out onto floured surface until about 1 inch thick.
Cut and bake at 220 for approx 12-15 mins, depending on size.
Serve with jam and cream.

That’s the basic recipe but you can  add all sorts of things like: Bacon, onions, cheese and a pinch of curry OR Cheese, sundried tomatoes and herbs OR raisins and cinnamon etc.
In the case of savoury ones I would press out the dough and instead of cutting into circles, just cut squares and then cut those into triangles and bake. Gives you a different shape and serve them piping hot with butter.
My husband loved doing the tasting,  but my biggest problem is  to decide which of the 3 recipes I am going to use for Sunday!
