Grandma Johnson’s Scones

posted in: cooking | 0

keiraeatingI have become addicted to, a fantastic website where I do all of my hunting for recipes.  You can search for them by recipe name, ingredients, category, cooking style and more.  After I type in the recipe I am looking for – scones, for example – I then sort the recipes by their rating with the quick click of a button.  This way, I can be pretty sure I am getting the best recipe out of the batch.  I look for the ranking of one to five stars (I only cook 4 to 5 star recipes) and how many people have reviewed it and saved it in their own online “recipe box.”  I love being able to return to my recipe box so quick and easily.  It is much better than flipping through cookbooks at home!

Oh the wonder that is baked goods!  This morning I made a delectable breakfast and everyone was quite pleased!  Grandma Johnson’s Scones were a huge hit – so much so that I had to practically hide them from my husband so he would stop eating them!  I followed the recipe as given on  However, I made a few changes.  I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the whole batch and then split the batch in half.  To one half I added 1/2 cup of frozen rasberries.  To the other half of the batch I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and 2 – 3 tablespoons of brown sugar.  I wish I had some raisins on hand because that would have topped it off perfectly!  Both types came out AWESOME and I will be counting the days until I make these again!  It was also a great recipe for my daughter to get involved and help with!





These scones were so quick and easy to make and should be no trouble for a beginning baker.
