Newest Snowman Pattern!

My newest pattern is ready to go.... I know I told you all they would be canned snowmen, BUT I got side tracked and did these instead! They are a cute twist on a martini, these are my Snowtini's. Although I came up with the actual pattern, the idea came from a dear friend. She drew her idea out on paper and prompted me to come up with these unique snowmen. I loved the idea and had to go with it! I do love these Snowtini's and hope you do too. I do promise one day you will see canned snowmen, these things just have to happen when the time is right. For now this newest pattern can be purchased on all my selling sites.

I am enjoying Fall so much! I love the colors and crisp air. Yesterday we did a neat tour in spokane where you hop from farm to farm and enjoy the Fall festivities they offer. Some had corn mazes, others had pressed cider, others had adorable gift shops and pumpkin patches! I will post soon what I did with all the Indian Corn I bought. :-) I hope you all are enjoying this time of year as much as I do.

As always I appreciate you stopping by!

a great scone recipe!

Like I told you....I recently celebrated my 30th wedding anniversary in Missoula Montana at a fabulous bed and breakfast called (Gibson Mansion) If you are in that area you really should stay there is is the best! The website address is:

See that scone on the tray??? Well let me tell you those were the best darned scones I have ever tasted! I asked the owner for their recipe and he gave it to me. I do want to share it here for all of you in blogland that love a good scone. Here it is: 

Gibson Mansion 
Bed and Breakfast 

2 Cups white flour
3-4 Tablespoons white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 stick real butter
1/3 cups frozen fruit of choice (raspberries, blueberries etc....) 
The version I love is raspberry white chocolate!
White choc. chips (optional)
3/4 cups milk
Sugar in the raw

Preheat convection oven to 375 degrees
In kitchen aid mixer, combine butter softened to room temperature, flour, sugar, and baking powder, until mixture resembles coarse oatmeal. Add milk and and mix until blended. Take dough out of the mixer and roll it out to a big circle, now take FROZEN fruit and sprinkle it all over the dough. Add some white chocolate pieces if you are so inclined. Now fold over the dough several times to incorporate the fruit and chips into it evenly. I use frozen fruit so it won't bleed all over the place. Shape this dough into a circle that is about 1" thick. Generously sprinkle the dough circle with sugar in the raw. Cut the circle so you end up with 8 wedges and place them on a baking sheet. convection bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. My elevation and oven end up cooking this a bit slower, mine take more like 23 minutes or more. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!
