Cynthia Nixon's Yummy Scones

Make yourself a Sex and the City-style breakfast with Cynthia Nixon's recipe for scones. These are the same scones her mother makes.

I found this recipe in a spiral-bound cookbook titled "More Recipes & Reminiscence" edited by Broadway production stage manager Roy Harris. It is chock full of stories and food from celebrities who have appeared on Broadway.  

 Bon appetit!


2 tbs butter
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp baking powder
Raisins, walnuts (optional)

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg. Add flour, milk, baking powder. Mix, but not too thoroughly. Add nuts and raisins now, if you wish. Cut dough into pieces about 1 inch wide and 6 inches long.

Fold in half. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes; or, as a loaf, for 45 minutes. Serve hot, and spread with butter for extra yumminess.
