Tasty Tuesday ~ Scotch Scones

From Mrs Wilson’s Cook Book

SCOTCH SCONES

Place in a mixing bowl
Five cups of flour,
One and one-half teaspoons salt,
Three level tablespoons baking powder,
One-half cup of sugar.

Sift to mix and then rub in
One-half cup of shortening,

And mix to a dough with
One and one-fourth cups of milk.

Now work in
            One-half cup of currants,

Or

One-half cup of raisins,
One-quarter cup of finely chopped citron,
One teaspoon cinnamon,
One-half teaspoon nutmeg,
One-half teaspoon allspice.


Divide into six pieces and then roll out the size of a saucer and about three-quarters of an inch thick. Make two cuts forming a cross, dividing the dough into four wedge-shaped pieces. Brush with beaten egg and bake for fifteen minutes in a hot oven. This amount will make twenty-four scones. To serve, split and fill with jam and then pile on a wicker basket, cover with a napkin and serve with tea.
