2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. plus 1 T. sugar, divided
2-1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. nutmeg
1/2 c. chilled butter, sliced
1/2 c. milk
1 t. lemon zest
3/4 c. raspberries
1 T. butter, melted
Sift together flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Cut in chilled butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg and lemon zest; stir into dry ingredients. When mixture forms a soft dough, fold in raspberries. Shape dough into a ball and knead on a lightly floured surface 8 to 10 times. Lightly coat a baking sheet with non-stick vegetable spray; place dough in the center. Pat into a 9-inch circle about 1/2-inch thick. With a sharp knife, score dough into 8 wedges; do not separate. Brush top of dough with melted butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake scones at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
Are you as shocked as I am to look at the calendar today and see #19?
Where did this month go!?
At our house we've been studying character traits...
we've covered Compassion, Contentment, and Courage
I just realized through some trials I'm going through how much I am lacking in these traits!
We're also learning through biblical character study, that you can't have these character
traits unless you are submissive and obedient to God and His Word.
It's been a big eye opener for me!
One of the quotes from our book by Gary Maldaner says
"Your character will determine your usefulness to the Lord now, and later in life."
Something to ponder!
I'll leave you with this verse:
"Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be etablished. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil."
