How about a recipe? I’m planning on slowly moving the recipes from my languishing food blog over here, since I see no reason to keep the two separate anymore. I developed this scone recipe for Selma’s seventh birthday–she had a tea party complete wtih little sandwiches, tiny cupcakes, and these scones which happen to be vegan as well as delicious.

Orange Scones

1 3/4 cups unbleached flour
1/4 c. whole wheat pastry flour (or whole wheat flour)
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/3 c. Earth Balance margarine
zest of one organic orange
1/2 c. soy milk

Preheat oven to 350

Combine flours, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine. Cut in margarine with pastry cutter. Add orange zest and stir to incorporate.

Add milk, and stir with a fork until milk is worked in, then mix with your hands. Dough should be soft–add more milk a teaspoon at a time, if needed. Form a ball and press dough into a circle 1/2″ thick on a
floured cookie sheet.

With a floured knife, make 4 cuts most of the way through the dough creating 8 triangular pieces. Bake for 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Serve warm with margarine, jelly, soy whipped cream… enjoy!

p.s. If you’ve tried to leave a comment on the blog in the last week or so, and haven’t seen it appear, my apologies–the blog was attacked by spam comments–over a thousand of them, and I’ve just finished wading through and deleting the offenders, so things should be back to normal now!

Tea Time?
