What the Beck???

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location: Perfect Cream Scones
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
Pages: 166 - 167   Copyright:  2013 Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 100 calories, if 44 individual servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         These easy to make scones would be a great way to start the day with a cup of coffee, or as a mid morning snack with a cup of tea. I just liked them plain.

First, I sifted together the dry ingredients.
Then I cut in the butter

Should look like this when mixed

Then, I mixed the egg and heavy whipping cream together
Pour it into the dry ingredients
I used my hands to mold it into a rectangular shape
Then I used the rolling pin.
I love this rolling pin so much!
This is what I ended up with when I was finished

I used my trusty pizza cutter to divide the dough into squares

Just look at those yummy butter pieces
The next step was to divide the squares into two triangles
I always use these liners as they save the pans,
 and nothing sticks to them
(not even melted cheese)
They look homemade as they are not perfectly triangular

I use the racks to allow them to cool

The Garage Sale

         I have always enjoyed going to garage sales and looking for treasures. I do not enjoy hosting a garage sale, however. I am not good at just sitting in a chair for hours and hoping people drop by to purchase something.
         Even though it is not my favorite thing to do, I am glad that I put so many books in the hands of my neighborhood children. I sold almost everything for a quarter, because the goal was to empty my garage of the boxes of my personal school library. I am donating the remaining books to an organization called SCARCE..
         This is a great organization that appears to take many objects. The building is in Glen Ellyn. The address is 799 E. Roosevelt Road, Building 2, Suite 108.  Check out the website and then go on a cleaning spree.

So many books!

This was the first round that I put out for sale

So much to sell
