Food Friday

Scones!!! I love scones, especially from our Puyallup Fair! But that only comes around once a year!
My friend Kara uses this great recipe which is as close as you can get to buying the scone mix at the store (which I still think does not compare to the Fisher Fair Scones!)

3 C all-purpose flour
3 T sugar
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/2 C chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/4" pieces
3 eggs, divided
1 C plus
1 T milk, divided

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray.In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into flour mixture untilparticles are the size of small peas. In a medium bowl, beat 2 eggslightly with 1 cup milk. Add to flour mixture; stir until just mixed.On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently (don't overwork orscones will be tough). Divide dough in half. Pat each into a round dome. Flour a knife before cutting into wedges. Place wedges 1"apart on prepared baking sheet.In a small bowl, combine 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of milk. Brush onto scones. Bake 15 - 18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove fromoven and serve warm.

Yields 12 - 14 scones.
