It's been awhile since I bake any scone.These days our weather over Northeast is extremely cold and windy.There is no joke every other day we have snow falling at least few inches.The warm and baking aroma from the oven is really welcoming!!The beauty of baking is the wonderful aroma flaring all over my kitchen. I adapted this scones recipe from alton-brown scones.This scones is fluffy and delicious.
2 cups all purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons shortening
2 oz cream cheese
3/4 cup cream ( replace with half and half)
Handful dried currants or dried cranberries ( I used raisin)
2:In a separate bowl, combine cream ,cream cheese with beaten egg then add to dry ingredients. Stir in fruit.
3: Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Roll dough out and cut into biscuit size rounds. Bake for 15 minutes or until brown.
4:Remove biscuit from oven to cooling rack.Serve warm with coffee or tea.
