Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone!
I’d like to thank everyone for all the comments, “likes” and subscribes. In all honesty, I had no idea what being “Freshly Pressed” even meant. Suddenly I had 200 emails in my inbox from WordPress… what is going on!??!?”. But I figured it out pretty quickly! So, thank you for all your messages! I hope you visit again. : )
Anyways, back to Irish-Pride day! To make today a little extra special (Besides wearing lots o’ green and listening to Irish music all day) I made some delicious scones and honeybutter.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen
- 1/2 cup raisins and Crasins (I use more than 1/2 cup)
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 large egg
Directions (Preheat oven to 400 degrees)
(Recipe adapted from AllRecipes.com)
To make the Honeybutter – Just mash up room temperature butter with honey. I actually used Organic Agave Nectar.
And the finished result?
Delish!! Pair that with a nice cup of tea and a book and I’m one happy Scot-Irish lass.
Did you do anything fun to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
