English Scones with Natalie Tacy

img_7348After going to The English Rose tea room in Chattanooga, Tennessee this weekend to celebrate our cousin Natalie getting a new job as an airline flight attendant and moving to New York, what do you do?? Our idea? Make scones. They were much easier than we imagined.

1 1/2 cups plain flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup sugar- Mix well- add 1 cup mayonnaise or sour cream- knead well and form into a ball. Roll out onto floured board or wax paper 3/4 inch thick and cut with round biscuit cutter. Bake on wax paper 10-12 minutes in preheated oven 400 degrees.

And of course what you put on the scones is as important! Butter and honey are at the top of the list, and a close second is lemon or raspberry curd, followed by any preserves or jelly. Or just eat them plain if you like.

  1. Love the photography — just makes me want some tea and one of your warm scones! Also — aren’t those the “good” dishes from Dunkel Rd? What memories those special dishes hold for me! ❤


  2. I love the English Tea Room, I haven’t enjoyed it in years, I’m so glad they are still there to fellowship and enjoy. You all look wonderful! Natalie we wish you the very best in your new adventure, I will miss seeing your beautiful smile when we are in Chickamauga at the same times. The scones look very delicious!
