Hot English Scones and Suffrage Wagon News Notes

PumpkinRecipesNew video for this posting, all about the audio podcast series.  Plus a reminder that the time is right to combine a fall trip to see the colorful landscape with events in Seneca Falls, NY. Get a shot of inspiration by watching the Seneca Falls video from Suffrage Wagon News Channel.

When planning a social event at home or for your organization, consider making English scones. They’ll be fresh out of the oven and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. At bakeries it isn’t unusual to spent up to $2 and more for a scone. Take note of the ingredients and watch for the video, coming soon, from Suffrage Wagon Cooking School.

Ingredients: 3 cups all-purpose flour; 1/2 cup white sugar; 5 teaspoons baking powder; 1/2 teaspoon salt; 3/4 cup butter; 1 egg beaten; 1 cup milk. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Process: In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter. Mix the egg and milk in a small bowl and stir in flour until moist. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead quickly. Roll dough out onto a 1/2 inch thick round on a lightly floured surface round. Cut into eight wedges and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven or until golden brown.
