A NEW BUSINESS IN PINEDALE!

CORA' S BAKERY
Annie and her friends are all a twitter about a new business in town! The vacant house next door to Annie has been rented by Cora. This large 2 -story Victorian country home is Cora's living space on the second floor. But, the first floor has been converted to a wonderful gathering place called "Cora's Bakery". When Cora moved in, Annie was quick to visit her with a basket of blueberry scones, unaware of Cora's now obvious baking abilities.

Cora loved the scones and immediately asked for the recipe which Annie happily shared. The chalkboard menu on the front porch now features "Annie's Blueberry Scones". Cora is happy to share that recipe with you.

"Annie's Blueberry Scones"

2 c. sifted all-purpose flour

1 c. fresh or frozen clean blueberries

1/3 c. sugar

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

5 tbsp. sweet butter, cut into sm. pieces

3/4 c. milk

Sprinkle 1/2 cup flour over berries; toss and set aside. Sift remaining flour with salt, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder into large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until well mixed. Add blueberries and flour; toss well to mix. Sprinkle the milk over and mix gently with a fork until dough just holds together. Drop by spoon onto lightly greased baking sheet. Dip your hand in flour and gently pat down the scones until about 1 inch thick. Bake in a 425 degree oven 12-15 minutes.

Cora is waiting for you to visit and share warm scones and good coffee with her.
