Old Friends

It is always lovely to connect with friends whether new ones or ones you have had for years. Today was a very special day because a friend and her daughter came over who I knew since I was fifteen!! What a blessing it was since she has never been to my house before.

She moved to Hawaii from the state I live in now back when she was in her early twenties. I lived in Hawaii then while my father was a pastor of a church. I was blessed to stay in her home two years ago when I went back after many years. Another blessing!!

Having a friend over when you live a ways from everyone is a real treat. It is good to have some food to share while you visit. As I lay in bed last night I thought over what I had in the house and came up with scones. So that is what I made this morning and popped them in the oven, just before they arrived.


3 cups flour
2 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup (plus just a tad more) milk
2 eggs
1/4 butter softened (or Crisco)

Mix ingredients. Roll out and sprinkle with sugar. Cut into small squares. Put a spoonful of your favorite preserves into the center of square. Fold each square in a triangle. Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees.

Here is the procedure I described above in pictures:

Just had to have a cookie too!!

I would love to have you stop by too!! 

So, stay awhile and lets visit together 
while you go through my past posts :-)

In Christ Alone my hope is found!!

~Love Judith~


  1. Hi Judith, oh those look soooooooooo good..
    I am making Crepes in the morning :)

  2. Thank you! I've never made scones and should try them soon.
    (The link worked.)

  3. I love scones. These look delicious! Not to mention easy to make! Have you ever tried Panera's orange scone? Addictive!

  4. Hi Judith, Thanks so much for stopping over to Quirky Vistas and leaving me a comment. That's how I found you and I'm so glad I did! I have never made scones, but you make it look simple and delicious! I'm your new follower. Hope you'll come back and follow as well!

  5. Yesterday I had LOTS of blond moments. I had to correct the recipe because I put down baking SODA instead of baking POWDER!!! My husband liked the scones the other day...and asked me to make him some for breakfast...AND thankfully I saw my mistake!!

  6. Would love to have sat down across the table and enjoyed your scones and your company, Judith...thanks for the delicious pictures/recipe.

  7. Those look they will make a good visit a little better. :)


If you have gone a little way ahead, O friend, call back --
Twill cheer my heart and help my feet along the stony track.
