  1. Oh, these look delicious! I know what we are making this weekend.

  2. That looks yummy. I bet they are delicious with tea.
    I made homemade whipped cream a while back and couldn’t believe how easy it was. I just threw those ingredients into the Kitchenaid mixer with the whip beater and about 5 minutes later I had whipped cream. I will never buy cool whip again.

  3. I made scones once. They were beautiful and smelled yummy. I left them cooling on a wire rack. When I came back they were gone. The ENTIRE batch. I’ll have to ask my big yellow dog if they were any good.

    I may be over the loss of the last batch enough to try these. They look YUMMY!

  4. White flour? White? No whole wheat? Next thing I know….you’ll be knitting socks.

    That is delicious looking, Yum! We ate Florida strawberries with lunch and they were a wonderful late winterish treat for us.

    • LOL

      I have a scone recipe for whole wheat, but I didn’t feel like grinding the wheat. Besides we all know sugary goodness isn’t the same with whole wheat.

      It was delicious.

      Yes, I am going to learn to knit socks. My fingers are already twitching and my eyes cry at the sight of a knitting needle.
