It’s time for another holiday festival of scone making. This is weekend #2 of making these little delicious pastries and there may be one more to go (we’ll see). Scones are delicious, easy, and last well, making good gift treats for friends, family, and coworkers.

Ingredients
2 cups flour
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 T turbinado sugar (plus more for board)
1/4 C vegan margarine (soften if needed)
2/3-3/4 C soy milk

Add ons:
1/2 C raisins and 3 T cinnamon
1/2 C dried cranberries, 2 T orange zest, 1/2 orange juiced
1/2 C chocolate chips
½ C chopped almonds and 2 t of vanilla extract

Process
Mix dry ingredients.  Use a pastry cutter to cut in margarine until it forms crumbles in the flour.  Add flavorings and stir.  Add soy milk bit by bit until dough forms into a ball.  I use a stand mixer for this with a dough hook.

Cover a cutting board with a thin layer of turbinado sugar. Divide ball into 4-6 even pieces, place on  your sugared board, flatten to about 1/3 inch thick and sprinkle liberally with sugar.

Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut into pie shaped slices.  Bake at 400* until slightly browned on the top.  This will take around 20 minutes.

    I LOVE Scones! I never tried vegan version though. I actually like the process of making scones, you know cutting in the butter and such. I do it without a food processor, love the old fashion way for some reason.

    The ones you made look so good, I knew I shouldn’t have looked on an empty stomach!

    Charlie looks like you!

    Have a great Christmas and New Year!
