Happy Monday

Relaxing this evening in front of the fire reading a book about the English countryside, some beautiful homes and yummy pictures of scones.    Had to have some,  so I made them.   My  husband and I enjoyed  them with coffee.   I do like tea, but he had the coffee made.
I used rose petal sugar that I made in the summer.  With sugar I ground with the rose petals in my coffee grinder made the sugar very powdery. 
   I didn't have any cream to add to my dough  mixture so I added yogurt.  Mace is another spice I must remember the next grocery day, brings out the flavor - sooo  good.
  There is also some rose petal sugar in the mix also.

I mixed the sugar ( you can see the ground petal in the mixture)  with rice milk that I had on hand.
the mixture was a little dark so I added some red sugar crystals to lighten it up a bit
My sugar ground  with rose petals




The glaze hardens but we didn't wait,   enjoyed  it warm with some butter.
I may try some of my
rose petal jelly between the layers in the morning.

    Just stopping by to catch up on the few posts I missed. I'd never heard of rose petal sugar. The scones look delicious.
