Occasionally I get a bee in my bonnet and decide to have scones for lunch. This week the lunchtime scones were courtesy of my friend Maureen, who recently gifted me with a package of scone mix.
This mix is from Cobblestone Kitchens, which I learned is a Canadian firm. That's appropriate since Maureen is Canadian too! These scones couldn't have been any easier to whip up. You pour the scone mix into a bowl, add 6 tablespoons of vegetable oil and a cup of milk (I used skim milk), stir/scoop/bake, and about 15 minutes later you have nice, hot scones!
I love Lemon Poppyseed-flavored anything, and these scones were especially good. They baked up nice and fluffy, and the lemon taste was excellent. It was probably overkill that I had some lemon curd with mine, but boy, were they good. I often see scone mixes but have rarely bought them, so it was quite a treat to receive one from my friend Maureen. Have you tried any scone mixes you like lately?
