A couple of weeks ago I wrote about taking a pause between projects - and apparently I really took that to heart because last week for the first time in over two years I spaced out and didn't write a blog post!
In hindsight I think it was some combination of not feeling creatively inspired (or that I had anything interesting to share . . .), and being totally exhausted. The latter being a side effect of my new crazy workouts at Orange Theory Fitness & not drinking enough water. Yes, I still struggle to stay hydrated - I think I'm going to be working on that for the rest of my life.
So there have been lots of solid naps, finishing a book (with two new ones arriving from Amazon this week), and baking!
Yep - sometimes I become my Mom and baking (and feeding people) becomes my love language. The first batch actually started out as a thank you gift for my sons' friend who let me interview him for my podcast last week (it's going to be awesome!) - but then my kids wanted some too, and I had a few . . . and then it turned into lots & lots of scones.
The are so yummy and generally so appreciated . . . I thought I'd just share the recipe with you.
Preheat Oven to 400°.
1 Cup Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 Tbsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
Mix dry ingredients in a small food processor. (or in a bowl).
Blend in 2 Tbsp Butter.
Add 1 egg (saving a little white on the side), and 3 Tbsp sour cream. Mix until it turns into dough.
Turn onto floured board & knead a bit "until nice." Add currants or candied orange peel if you wish.
Pat into a circle & cut into 1/4 or 1/6.
Transfer to greased aluminum foil, brush with reserved egg white, and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes.
& VOILA! (or VIOLA! As one of my co-workers used to say . . . cracked me up every time. :) )
After making these for years . . . here are my notes:
Yep - that's my well-loved recipe from about 20 years ago!
