Barbara Stricker wanted a recipe for heavenly hash from the former Showboat Dinner Theater. Pat Way hopes her recipe will be a fine substitution. Bill Henry shares a scone recipe for Deborah Lemmon to try. He says to use fresh baking soda or they won't rise properly.

For: Deborah Lemmon of Dunedin
From: Bill Henry of Largo
Recipe: Lemon Scones
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup sour milk (see note)
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add milk and lemon peel, stirring just until mixed. Turn onto a floured surface; knead gently six times. Shape into a ball. On a greased baking sheet, pat dough into a circle about 1/2 inch thick and 8 1/2 inches in diameter. Using a sharp knife, cut wedges in the dough, being careful not to cut all the way through. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Makes 10 to 12 scones.
NOTE: To make sour milk, place 1 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar in a measuring cup. Add enough milk to equal 1/2 cup.
