Point & Shoot

Saturday 6th November 2010 3.02pm
Afternoon tea for our latest round of weekend guests 
: Home made scones with jam and cream…and champagne of course!

And I can assure you they were even tastier than they look. My Mum’s recipe for lemonade scones are FOOLPROOF and dead easy.

: 4 cups of SR flour
: 300ml thickened cream
: 300ml lemonade

That’s it.

Mix together in bowl, move onto floured board when mixed (will be sticky) then knead slightly but don’t overwork {more like pat them into shape}. Use floured glass to cut out…add onto baking tray with them touching then pull apart and devour just as soon as you won’t burn your fingers!

Just call me Beverley.
