May's Featured Recipe:

Cherry Scones

  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 8 TBS unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1/2 c. dried cherries
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1 large egg

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle, and preheat to 400°.

Mix flour, 1/3 c. of sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Coarsely grate butter into the flour mixture. Work butter into flour with your fingers until it resembles coarse meal. Add cherries.

Whisk sour cream and egg in a small bowl until smooth. Stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large clumps form. Use your hands to make a ball out of the dough. (It may not look like there is enough liquid, but keep working!)

Place on floured pastry cloth and pat into an 8 inch circle (3/4 in. thick). Sprinkle with 1 tsp. of sugar. Cut into 8 triangles and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15-17 minutes.

These are some of Mim's favorite recipes. Mim has a lot of cookbooks, and she gets a lot of recipes online, but she rarely follows them to the letter. If a dish goes over well, Mim has to write the recipe down while we're still eating so she doesn't forget what ingredients she used!

This cookbook contains the recipes that have become staples in Mim's kitchen over the years. Food "purists" criticize some of the changes that Mim makes to her recipes, but anyone that has tasted Mim's cooking knows that it just tastes good.

Mim also has a granddaughter with severe food allergies, so she adapts a lot of her recipes. Click here for recipes with no dairy, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, or wheat.

Mim bought a laptop a few years ago so that she could get recipes online and type her own recipes. This website is a growing collection of favorites. The recipes are printer-friendly (no need to click a separate link!), so Mim can give copies to her friends who don't care to access them online, and in a large-view version, so that Mim can open the recipe on the laptop on the counter and still see the print from the stove.

Enjoy!
