Grandma Johnson's Scones

Grandma Johnson's Scones created by Baby Kato

Grandma clearly knew her scones! this is the non healthy, full fat and most wonderful version. If anyone has the heart (no pun intended) to to trim these down in fat please let me know how it worked out.

  • In a small bowl, blend the sour cream and baking soda, and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

    I add a tsp of almond flavoring to the wet ingredients and change the raisins to dried cherries and add a 1/2 cup of pecans. Hubby loves them. Since it's just he and I, and since I am always dieting I cut the recipe in half so I don't eat so many. They are so good.

    The good news is these are delicious but the bad news is I had a difficult time getting the dough moist enough to knead-having to add another egg and more sour cream. This could be my fault due to the variances in flours hence the five star review. A small amount of solid coconut oil replaced butter. Half the batch was shaped into scones and the other half shaped into a round and baked in a cast iron skillet. Yum! 5 stars for taste! Served with homemade strawberry jam and more butter! Made for Best of 2012.
