Point & Shoot

Saturday 6th November 2010 3.02pm
Afternoon tea for our latest round of weekend guests 
: Home made scones with jam and cream…and champagne of course!

And I can assure you they were even tastier than they look. My Mum’s recipe for lemonade scones are FOOLPROOF and dead easy.

: 4 cups of SR flour
: 300ml thickened cream
: 300ml lemonade

That’s it.

Mix together in bowl, move onto floured board when mixed (will be sticky) then knead slightly but don’t overwork {more like pat them into shape}. Use floured glass to cut out…add onto baking tray with them touching then pull apart and devour just as soon as you won’t burn your fingers!

Just call me Beverley.


  1. BEV! Ha! You have no idea how much I wanted to leap into my computer and grab those scones. I am so trying this one… Yesss!

  2. Oh god, right now I hate you! I have been wanting scones for weeks now (after seeing them on a tv show) and I had managed to forget about wanting them. Til now!!!
