Hello! :-) Here's a recipe for a delicious sweet bread called scones. Enjoy!

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup whipping cream
2 tsp. finely shredded lemon peel
whipping cream

1. Preheat oven to 375* F. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, the 1/3 cup sugar, the baking powder, and salt. Make a big dent or well in the center of flour mixture. Add the 3/4 cup whipping cream and lemon peel.

2. Stir until mixture is crumbly. Coat hands with a little flour. Use your hands to gently knead the dough in the mixing bowl until it can be formed into a ball. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.

3. Gently roll or pat the dough into a 7 1/2-inch circle. Using a table knife, cut the dough like a pizza into 6 or 8 wedges to make scones. Place scones about 1-inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Lightly brush scones with additional cream; sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake about 18 minutes or until scones are golden brown on the tops and the bottoms. Use a wide metal spatula to remove the scones from the cookie sheet. Serve warm . Makes 6 to 8 scones.
And to the left is a glimpse into a portion of our garden! We have revised it a bit (since the last picture I posted of it), after viewing a Saturday gardening show that gave us the inspiration for the new design! With that plan in motion in this area, it should make it much easier to weed the garden, without having to get in the garden. :-)
"...but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. "
2 Peter 3:18
