St Patrick's Day 2012

2 Cups Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 Ounces Butter
Mix with a fork for 1 minute
Do not overwork dough
2 handfuls sugar
3 handfuls golden raisins/currants
Mix with a fork for 1 minute
Mix together:
1 Cup Milk (set aside enough to dip tops in)
1 Egg

Mix into flour mixture with a fork for 1 minute
This is a quick bread, do not overwork or overmix.

Flour cutting surface, dump dough onto board and gently form into 1-2" high round. Cut in circles or simply scoop equally sized chunks with your hands, dip the tops in milk, place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 400F for 10 minutes, then turn over, bake additional 5 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with jam or butter.

Thanks for stopping by today, Happy St Patrick's Day.

  10. Candy, I love this table!! Of course, besides Persimmon, Lemongrass is my next favorite and I love all the ways you use the color. Always so fun or so beautiful. Where did you find the square shamrock plates, they're precious and go so well with the lemongrass. Though I'm Italian, I love St. Patrick's Day for all the fun and because green is my favorite color!
    Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and yours!!
