Deanna Gaudaur had invited KQG members to visit her home in Kijabe to see her long-arm quilting machine setup, so a large group of them arrived on August 2.  Everyone had a great time, although the weather was chilly, and they enjoyed a wonderful pot luck lunch.  Thanks, Deanna, for your hospitality!

Deanna also sends along her recipe for Cranberry/Orange Scones:

Kijabe Cranberry/Orange Scones
Combine in mixing bowl:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar(Or 2 T sugar if you aren’t making icing)

Cut in to the flour in small pieces (size of peas):

  • 1/4 cup shortening (Kimbo)

Add to the flour mixture:

  • 1/4 cup glazed orange peel (beside the glazed cherries in Nakumatt)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries

Add and gently stir in

  •  3/4 cup unsweetened lala (or sour milk or 1/2 plain yoghurt and 1/2 milk)
Knead a few times and pat into a 8″ circle. Cut into 6-8 wedges and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven (225 degrees celsius or 450 fahrenheit) for about 15 minutes, or golden brown. Drizzle while still warm with a combination of a couple tablespoons of orange juice and enough powdered sugar to make a thin icing.
