I'm so Sconed...

Just about a few weeks ago, I met and ingested my first scone.
Yep, 22 year old Amber meet scone. 
Scone meet Amber... oh wait, you're all gone except for a crumb or two.
That scone never stood a chance. 

My love affair with scones started fast and boy did I fall hard. 
As great as Starbucks makes them, I wanted to make and master the art of scones.
Well, it didn't take much to "master" scone-making.
Let me just share with you... These are irresistible! 


Looking good aren't they? 
Well, Mr. Thomas inhaled two of them before church on Sunday and when I came out 
to blend up my morning smoothie, he was sitting in a scone-induced coma on the couch.
When he finally came to, all he could manage was, 

"Amber, I'm so sconed." 

What a lovely little pun, right? 
I know, get on with it already, we're hungry for a recipe.


Zesty Raspberry Scones

2 cups flour
1 cup sour cream or yogurt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
Zest from 1 orange
1 cup frozen raspberries
(If you want to go with fresh pop them in the freezer 
to keep them together during mixing)

2. In a bowl blend the sour cream and baking soda.
 3. In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt.

These scones taste best with a cup of fresh brewed coffee...
Or cocoa or cider or tea!
