Sunday Morning Scones….

This morning, I just needed scones with my tea. I tweaked our Traditional Scone recipe

 

and came up with these Blueberry-Sour Cream Scones…so perfect with my Assam tea…outside on the patio…

 

a perfect Sunday Morning!

Cranberry-Meyer Lemon Scones….a favorite for a rainy day….

 

 

A huge bin filled with smooth skinned Meyer Lemons triggered a drooling response. Wiping my mouth, and stuffing a plastic bag with yellow fruit, I dreamed of our Oregon St. Tea Company signature Cranberry-Meyer Lemon Scones.

Rushing in the door, I plopped the groceries down….put away all items requiring refrigeration….washed the lemons and proceeded to stir up a batch of scones.

Add a little clotted cream…(which I found in our local market!)……

 

 

…a cup of tea…..

 

 

…..and enjoy those delicious scones….
