Here is the scone recipe that has been in our family for over 100 years. Ideal for pairing with hot soups or stews on a cold autumn day. Enjoy!
Granny’s Brown Scones
1 c. white flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
3/4 c. sour milk or milk or buttermilk
2 oz. margarine
1/4 c. syrup (or can use honey or sugar)
1. Mix flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt together in a big bowl.
2. Beat egg and milk in a smaller bowl and add syrup.
3. Rub margarine into the flour mix, (or cut it in with knives), then add milk mixture. This will be a little on the wet side.
4. Rub hands with butter to handle dough. Put dough onto floured board and punch down the dough to required thickness.
5. Cut with cookie cutter (or use knife to cut dough into triangles).
6. Bake at 375 degrees F. (for about 13 minutes) until golden brown.
7. Makes about 1 dozen scones.
