    Where I’m from a scone is what we call a hunk of deep-fried bread dough, served piping hot, usually with honey. Something like Navajo fry bread.

    Adam is supposed to be a writer/editor? Is he kidding or is he being dense in the final panel?

    Scotch Cream Scones (a family recipe)

    2 cups flour (all purpose, sifted before measuring)
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1/2 cup shortening (Mum always used Crisco Vegetable Shortening, but lard works equally well)
    2 eggs beaten (medium)
    1/2 cup light cream (scant) or milk (Mum always used light cream –10% butter fat—) (“scant” is about a tablespoon short of a full 1/2 cup)

    Sift together all dry ingredients.
    Cut in shortening with pastry blender or two knives. (The dough should look like peas)
    Break eggs into cup and beat, add liquid and stir.
    Pour into dry ingredients and mix lightly and quickly.
    Pat or roll out (1/2 to 3/4 inch thick) and cut into biscuits. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375-400 deg. F. (On the second oven rack. Top rack is first.)
    Delicious served warm, well buttered. (BUTTERED!!)

    Final note from me: Keep a close eye on them from the 8 minute mark so they don’t burn.

    I think Adam is on too many pain meds.

    I’m getting whiplash from these intrusive ads on the left side of the page! They move the comic sideways as I’m trying to read it, and interfere when I click onto the next one. HELP!!

    If your computer runs on Windows try going to your “Control Panel”

    Find “Internet Options” or “Internet Properties” (The main panel names them the first title and the actual dialogue box names them the second.)

    Click on the “Privacy Tab”

    There are three options to tick at the bottom of the dialogue box which are, wonder of wonders for Windows, self explanatory.

    Put check marks in all three and click the “OK” button.

    I hope this helps.

    OK 2 of them were already checked, but I added the one about physical location. This is Windows 7.
