Fool-Proof Scones

In Bread, Breakfast, Chocolate on January 13, 2010 at 3:00 pm

I only do few thing well, but this scone recipe is fool proof, and I mean it. I have had it tested by fools and it always came out. I was reluctant to even share this recipe with you, but I did get it out of a magazine, so it’s not mine to keep to me self. Trust me, these thing are the bomb. My little brother calls them “stones”, but they do not, in any way, resemble stones. You might want to only make these about twice a year, because you easy could become obese on them, so try not to make these a idle in your life.

The dough will be very crumbly when you go to kneed/shape it, and the scones may be rather dry and crumbly when you shape them but they will come together when they bake.
I’m telling you little boys in aprons are the cutest thing EVER!
