|Option 1: Oatmeal Currant Scones|
Adventuresindinner responded with her Gran's recipe, and my god was she right about the scones rising! They were so fluffy and deliciously buttery (I did use butter, not shortening as I didn't have any of the latter)! I wish I'd taken a picture, but my battery died while I was making them, and then I forgot to recharge it before they got inhaled by my students. You know if it gets inhaled by a pack of ravenous 12-13 year olds, it's gotta be good.
Also, no more than 12 stirs? This will be my mantra from now on!
Thanks to everyone! I'm going to try out E_Hayes' chocolate chip pumpkin scones next. And if you haven't checked our her totally awesome fashion blog, I recommend it. I regularly covet her wardrobe!
