Raspberry Scones


I'd like to share this fantastic Raspberry Scones recipe with you today. They are filled with jam and baked until golden delicious. The scones taste scrumptious straight from the oven and it's perfect with a cup of tea of coffee.

Raspberry Scones

Ingredients

2-½ Cups (300 g)Sifted All-Purpose Flour

1/3 Cup (65 g) Sugar

2 tsp Baking Powder

¼ tsp Sea Salt
½ Cup/1 Stick Cold Unsalted Butter, cubed
¾ Cup Buttermilk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
½ Cup Raspberry Jam

Glaze

2 Tbsp Buttermilk

Method



With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 375˚F. Line a cookie sheet with 2 layer of parchment paper. 



In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the butter and pulse until the butter pieces are pea-sized. Add the buttermilk, vanilla extract, and pulse just long enough to moisten the flour. 


On a floured surface, flatten the dough with your hands or roll out to about 3/4 inch (2 cm) thick. Using 2½ inch round cookie cutter, cut the dough into rounds. Arrange the rounds on the baking sheet, leaving space between each one. Then use your thumb to make an indentation in the middle of the scone. Fill with jam and brush the tops and side with buttermilk.


Bake until golden brown, 25 to 28 minutes. Let cool on a rack, and serve warm.

Makes 8 to 10 Raspberry Scones

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
