Holiday Feast

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we had corned beef for dinner. I've tried making this the last few years and it's yet to turn out all that good. Maybe next year. In the interest of redeeming our dinner, I decided to make Irish Scones, since it was pretty much the only recipe that I could find that I had all the ingredients for. They turned out surprisingly good. They taste kind of like a sweet biscut-y type of scone. So, to share my good fortune in finding a good recipe, I'm sharing it all with you.

Irish Scones
1/2 cup butter
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
In large bowl combine butter and flour until it crumbly. Then add baking powder, salt & sugar.
In a separate bowl combine egg & milk. Then add to dry ingredients.
Turn onto floured surface and roll dough to 1 inch thick. Cut 2 inch rounds; I used the lid for a bottle because that was the only thing I could find! Place on greased cookie sheet 1 inch apart.
Bake 15 minutes. Makes about 18

I highly recommend putting something on them like jam or butter because they're a bit on the dry side. But they turned out better than the corned beef!
