There was just too much tooth drama going on Friday for yesterday to be a normal day. I was worn out. A little bit of worry seems to go a very long way these days. I did get my new kitchen toys washed and ready to use. I needed new cutting mats and I found some cute little ones on Amazon. 

I also bought a set of scone cutters. I've been addicted to watching people in the UK make scones and most of them use these so I had to have them too. I mixed up a dough using a box of raisins I had leftover from my lockdown days and had a pan full cut out and in the oven in no time. 

Look at those babies. I haven't had a good scone since our bakeshop down the street got sold. The new owners can't make a decent scone I am sad to say but these were sooooo good. I found the recipe on the "What's For Tea?" You Tube channel. It wasn't a lot of fun converting the measurements into something I could understand but it was worth it. They were perfect. 


  1. I love a good scone!

    A few weeks ago Vera and I went to a coffee shop in Easton (PA, not MD) and I had an Earl Grey Scone with caramel icing. Oh my word, I thought I was in heaven!

  2. Those scones look wonderful and delicious. That is one thing I'm missing being back in the US. We always, always had afternoon tea with scones or biscuits. It's a wonderful habit to have.
    Blessings and hugs,

  3. My grandmother was English and Scottish and she used to make them all the time when I was growing up. They are a delicious memory for me. Enjoy!

  4. Oh - there was a lady at our office who used to make lemon poppyseed scones and bring them in! Sooo good! It's one of the very few things I miss about the office.

  5. Oh, yum! Great job on the baking front!!!

  6. I've had maple pecan scones that were SO good from a bakery, yours look great!
