Just the thing to serve with picnic chicken. Barely handle these for best results. If you can get hold of White Lily flour, you will rewarded with lighter than air biscuits. They float off the plate. If you prefer even more tender biscuits with a slight crumble, use whipping cream instead of buttermilk and omit the baking soda. 


A cheese biscuit or mini scone with character.

Pecan or pumpkin biscuits would also be good here or thrown in a handful of toasted chopped pecans but plain, buttery baking biscuits in this pumpkin pie custard setting are divine.

These are more like fried dough than scones. They are big stretched out ovals of a lightly sweet dough, fried quickly and topped with a halo of a honey orange glaze. Fabulous diner style fare! They're called scones but they're a great recipe for fry bread.

Serve these with homemade chili or scrambled eggs or alone, with hot coffee and no one else around to see you've devoured 3 at a time! I love buttery biscuits or savory scones and the sharp orange Cheddar makes these into heavenly puffs - that take minutes to whip up and under 20 minutes to bake.

Lovely with tea - as the name suggests,. these are wee little butter cookies with a touch of spice, decked out with diced dried fruits, including cranberries, California dried apricots and sour cherries. But these cookies are so bittery and satisfying you could even leave out the fruit.

These yeasted scones are an adaptation of a recipe given to me by George Fenn. According to George, the bakery was started by the late Don Lloyd in 1949 and they were/are renown for Don's Scones. In summer they make hundreds of these daily and  this part of Muskoka loves them; this recipe should make a fan out of you too. These are not quite scones, not quite a sweet roll but something totally different. They are best fresh but incredible toasted; they are simply wonderful, lightly sweet, buttery pillows that have scone taste and look with a sweet bun attitude.  I would also try this recipe with raisins or dried cranberries and a touch of vanilla.
