Last September I was fortunate to attend the Puyallup Fair in Washington State and sample Fisher Scones (live!) for the first time. Trust me, they are amazing.
But you can make them at home and it’s easy, because you know I ONLY do easy.
If you can’t find this box in your grocery store you can buy Fisher Scone mix on Amazon, but keep in mind on Amazon it’s a 72 ounce box. I am using an 18 ounce box.
Just follow the simple directions:
Preheat oven to 425
You will need a full package of mix and ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons of cold water.
1. Place water and mix in a medium bowl. Stir with a spoon or fork until blended. Dough will be slightly sticky. This would be the point at which you add raisins or anything else you can dream up.
2. Knead dough 5-6 times on a generously floured board, folding dough in half on top of itself each time. (I actually failed pie baking and could do this!)
3. Divide dough into 3 pieces. Pat each piece into a 5-inch diameter dome, with the center slightly higher than the outside.
4. Cut each done into 4 wedges. Place scones on an ungreased baking sheet. (Okay, I ended up with a few more wedges because my math is a little skewed.)
5. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown. I baked mine 15 minutes because I’m at a higher altitude. And I brushed the tops with pure maple syrup a minute before they were done. Yum!
