Dessert-Super Scones for breakfast

Just had to share this recipe for super scones that someone shared on a chatboard.

3 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cups melted butter (real butter makes a huge difference)
12 tsp. raspberry jam
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup pecans
Mix first five ingredients, combine wet ingredients and add to dry ingredients with pecans. Mix lightly. Scoop batter out with a 1/4 cup measure onto baking sheet. Indent top of each scone with a teaspoon and put a teaspoon of jam on top. (Actually I put a little less than a teaspoon because it tends to run and spread. To be safe I will put 1/2 a teaspoon.) Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Makes 12 scones. Enjoy!!!!

I can see how real butter would make all the difference in these. They sound so nummy!

Just having fun cooking, shopping, and sharing ideas! said...

They do sound good, but to me ALL recipes sound wonderful. When I am watching my in take all I want to do is EAT and THINK about food. I think it is time for me to exercise some more.
