English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones
All cooks are jazz musicians or, if you prefer, experimental chemists; they get a good recipe and start improvising. I love this recipe. It works well with the orange juice but also I've used fat-free half and half (almost a half cup, I think) for the liquid. The basic recipe gives you a good scone to which I have added raisins, chips and nuts- all wonderful. I mix the dough with my hands (after it's been moistened enough) and just put rounded blobs of the dough on the cookie sheet. I usually sift all ingredients when I cook but NOT for scones or muffins- one wants the rough quality for them. They bake up very well. Outside they are slightly hard and a bit crispy, inside, dense and fluffy (really, they're both.) Very good recipe. Thank you so much for it.

Whipped Cream Frosting
This is a very versatile frosting that can also serve as a "fluff" layer in a cake (think Twinkies or Ho-ho's). I use this with vanilla for red velvet cake and it's an awesome peppermint fluff (tint it pink or light green) for filling or frosting. Make sure the flour mixture is cool and don't be afraid to beat the heck out of it. I've never gotten grainy results. Great recipe.

Great Gram's Sugar Cookies
These are like the cookies my depression-era grandmother made. They are not too sweet and are a bit on the biscuit-y side, taste wise. I adored them. It made a ton of cookies (I think I got 6 or seven dozen out of the recipe) and I divided up the dough and added lemon to some of it, cinnamon to some and coconut to some. It was like having a cookie variety in one recipe! I will make this recipe regularly now and I cannot thank you enough for bringing a little taste of my grandma back to me! Your recipe was a wonderful gift to me. Many thanks.
