A week ago I came across a recipe for Drop Scones in:
DROP SCONES. Makes 12.
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cold butter
4 tablespoons sugar (may substitute Spenda or similar)
1 egg beaten with 3 tablespoons of milk (I used "whole" milk)
6 drops lemon extract
Other (I added 2 tablespoons of currants.)
Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Rub in butter. Mix in sugar. Add beaten egg/milk mixture to make a smooth batter. Add flavoring (and currants, if using). Fry by dropping a level tablespoonful for each scone on to a fairly hot and well greased griddle (a frying pan will do). When brown underneath, turn and cook other side. Cool on a wire tray. Eat buttered.
