It's been a busy couple of days, so I haven't updated in a while, but I haven't stopped baking. Pat's grad party was last weekend, so I was busy with the family and friends from out of town, but I made these oatmeal raisin/chocolate chip cookies with my cousin Marissa.
On Monday, I moved out to my house in South Bend semi-permanently. When I finally got my power back, I made some scones so I'd have something to eat for breakfast.
To be honest, these were not that good. Since I'm still a little sparse on ingredients in the house, I had to substitute for baking powder, and I think that really messed with the taste. I have made these before, however, using the same recipe, and they turned out delicious, so I'm posting the recipe here.
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 F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
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 into flour mixture until moistened.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly. Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedges, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
