1/2 Photos of Puyallup Fair Scones (Fisher Scones)
Mrs Goodall's Note:
First, these scones are quick, easy, great and a perfect project for a beginning baker. Second...you need to know how to pronounce Puyallup...I wouldn't want anyone to embarrass themselves!!..."Pew-allup", not Pooyloop!!...Here in Western Washington the Puyallup Fair is a huge annual event. It is one of the largest in the US. The fair is all about food for me! And Fisher Scones are the biggest draw...they sell something like 80,000 a day or something like that!! I have many fond memories of Fisher Scones. I found this recipe on-line, the poster said that she came across the recipe in a 1930's Fisher Cookbook her grandmother had. The original recipe called for raisins, but they no longer make them that way. The ONLY way to eat these is warm with a big slab of butter and raspberry jam, just like they serve them at the fair!! Store them in an air tight container and they keep well. They taste nice cold, but way better heated up in the microwave, and don't forget the butter and jam! FYI...Make sure you sift, then measure the flour per instructions. NOTE: I took this recipe and made some changes to it and I think this new recipe is even better Mrs. G's Fair Scones Mrs. G's Fair Scones...try them both and see what you think!
