Scones for a Rainy Day

Waking up to a gray, rainy day just makes me want to curl up with a warm cup of coffee, yarn and just hide away until the sun comes out again.  Since I have no desire to venture out I set myself the task of making Strawberry Scones.  Utilizing a basic scone recipe I substituted fresh diced strawberries for the currants called for in the cookbook.Fresh out of the oven then look inviting, pieces of strawberries peaking out from behind a coating of crumbly dough.

Light, flaky, crisp dough holds little pockets of moist, flavorful strawberry.  An excellent treat with coffee or tea.

    Once I get my oven back up and running, I’ll be making your sesame seed cookies again for the Garden Club. I got a lot of compliments on the last batch. Found a cheaper source of sesame seeds at my Indian Spice store here in Novi. $3.99 for 14 oz.
