Sconeish Perfection (one meerkat's opinion)
s.u.r.i.

As promised.

as adapted from an Alton Brown recipe.

2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons shortening
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
A handful dried currants and candied lemon (Whatever you add-in, make sure it's chopped small, and not wet)

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well. Cut in butter and shortening with your fingers. In a separate bowl, combine milk with beaten egg then make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients gently until mixed. Stir in fruit.

At this point you will have a wet, sticky dough. You can either add more flour to shape rounds, or tip the dough into a scone pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until brown.
scone

What you'll get is a slightly dry, light, not-at-all-sweet scone that will work with everything from cheddar to honey, or brilliantly on its own, and is actually better the next day. :-)

...scone pan?

There are scone pans?

HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS

They also make mini scone pans, for bite-sized ones. I ...may have to buy one of those.

And yes, you can use 'em for cornbread, too.
