Recipe- Cream Scones

I took these scones to a get together and a few ladies asked for the recipe, so here it is!
*Cream Scones
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups whipping cream
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons cream

1) Heat Oven to 400. Lightly grease cookie sheet
2) In large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well blended. Add whipping cream all at once, stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
3) On lightly floured surface knead dough 6 or 7 times until smooth. Divide dough in half. Pat each half into 6-inch round; cut each round into 6 wedges. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
4) Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile in a small bowl mix powdered sugar and enough cream for drizzling over warm scones.

My friend gave me this recipe and she has added so many different yummy things to them. Some of the ones she has brought me were made with dried cranberries, candied ginger, and chocolate chips. I made them last with some lemon juice int he icing and they were very good.
It is nice to find a simple recipe that is so good. Her little boy is allergic to eggs and can never have any of the yummy stuff, so she was very excited to find this recipe to make him, and it has turned into a favorite of all of ours! Enjoy, and have fun with this recipe. If you add anything different let me know so I can try it too! I wish I had a picture to post of these, but they are always gone to fast;)

Scrapbook pages

I have been working on a few scrap book pages. One is the January page for a Calender I am making for My sister for Christmas. I know its only March, but if I make one each month than it is more likely to get finished! The other is Jamie's Valentines page, well one of them. I sewed the pieces and pictures on and ran out of pink thread so it isn't finished yet. I really like the look of the sewn edges. Jamie is my girly girl so I used a lot of Pink! Summer gave me the paper so I have no idea where it is from!

I made a practice quilt. It turned out pretty good I think, the lady at the quilt store even said so. I have to get a walking foot for my sewing machine. My machine didn't like the fabric on the back to much, there is a 6 inch spot in the back that is a bunch of bunched thread. That is why it is a practice quilt, Titus doesn't seem to mind though!! I am learning, and am going to take a begginer quilt class next month!
