Sconehenge

What I am about to give you is perhaps the best and the easiest scone recipe I have ever tried. This is one of those recipes that you hesitate to share. Only because people might find out they really weren't a big deal after all. I make these Christmas morning every year. I don't remember where or who this recipe came from....I have had it and used it for years. If you are going to a party, put them on a plate and wrap it in cello for your host. Match the style of the plate to the host's personality. You can even include some clotted cream and jam.

Scones

2 c. flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 T baking powder

1/4 c. sugar

1/2 c. currants or raisins

Add 1 1/4 c. heavy whipping cream. Stir lightly. Flour board. Dump mixture onto board and knead 7-8 times. Shape into a pie. Pat down. Score into pieces and cut. Line baking sheet or grease. Place the sconces individually on the baking sheet. Melt 3 T butter. Cover top and sides of each scone. Sprinkle the tops with sugar. Bake in a 425 degree preheated oven until tops are golden. ABOUT 12-15 minutes. Makes 8.
