Queen Elizabeth's Drop Scones, Prom and Puppies

Prom weekend had finally arrived.  After months of preparation and planning, the Seniors' special day was here and they were all in full force! Nails, hair, makeup, final dress adjustments...done!


The girls had some friends stay over the night before, so we gathered around the table with our celebratory box of mixed Dunkin Donuts and toasted to a beautiful, sunny morning with our orange juice!  Another "last" in our household this year...


While the girls spent the day doing their prom prepping, I tried out some new recipes.  I saw this one on the internet as published in Town & Country Magazine, "Queen Elizabeth's Drop Scones".  Since prom is a day fit for a Queen...why not?!

2 cups flour
4 Tbl sugar
1 cup milk
2 whole eggs
2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp cream of tartar
2 Tbl melted butter

Beat eggs, sugar and about half the milk together, add flour, and mix well together adding remainder milk as required, also baking soda and cream of tartar, fold in the melted butter.

** Her recipe ends there, but seeing as these are similar to pancakes, one can then assume the batter would be dropped into a pan by the spoonful and flipped when bubbles started to appear on the surface.

These can be served with a fruit jam/preserve on top or a squeeze of lemon and dusting of powdered sugar.

One Year Ago: Mike's Marinating Mess
Two Years Ago: Chicken with Gorgonzola Sauce
Three Years Ago: Cheesy French Dippy

Unfortunately when I woke (trying to get some extra shut eye) after coming home at 4am from working the "After Prom" party, these are the shenanigans that our puppy left for me...oh, this "child"!
