Your scones look so good! much better than all of my attempts, they all come out flat! x

Apparently the mixture has to be about one inch (2.5cm) thick when you come to cut them out, (that's what the receipe said anyway) I consulted Queen Delia for this one!

To answer your question, yes grandad did enjoy his scones, we also took him a chocolate cake and paper.  I think he thought it was christmas!!  aaahhh bless he is over 90!

Hello!
I am new to Craftster, I have been lurking since before Christmas.  This place is FANTASTIC!  normally I am just a cross stitcher and occasionally dabble in baking.  But the posts on this website are inspiring, so I think I might be taking up a few new hobbies this year!!

Anyway, my grandmother died in February, thankfully my granddad is coping quite well, but when ever we go down to see him we try to take a little treat with us.  We have done cakes up until now, but thought he might like a change, so I made scones!!

Havent made these in a loooonnnng time, have lost the original recipe I used to use, so we found one on the net and altered it to our needs (ie adding fruit in one batch and cheese in another!)

sorry not allowed to post pics yet

They turned out great and everyone enjoyed them, despite me trying to cook them through Earth Hour and using candle to check them!!  Granddad was very happy as we added cream and strawberry jam to them as well!  I thought for a moment that I might have put to much dried fruit in (in my defence 4oz didn't look like much!) but nobody complained

Thanks for looking, have an idea to try sun dried tomato, basil and parmesan cheese.  Not sure if I have seen these before or not!!

****UPDATE****

I made tomato, basil and parmesan Scones last night, they turned out really well!!  Especially considering I am a recipe cook as opposed to an experimental one!

Anyway I used a standard scone mix with a small handful of torn basil leaves (I hate chopping herbs!), about half a dozen sun dried tomatos (I did my best to remove as much oil as I could) and an unknown quantity of pamesan (it was out of a tub, and I just kept shaking it!).

a close up of the tomatoy bits!

I think next time I might use a couple of extra tomatos (depending on size) and some more parmesan (and make a note of weights next time!)

Thanks for looking - if anyone has a proper recipe for this please let me know.
