The Puyallup Fair is a big deal in Western Washington and these Fisher Fair Scones are a reason to go all by themselves. I know teachers who rush down to the fair and buy these to bring to school and share with staff. I remember waiting in long lines (think: Disneyland) to buy a scone for a quarter when I was a kid. Now they are $1.00 and there are multiple stands throughout the fair grounds so the lines are shorter.
Today is Fair Day in the Puyallup School District and classes let out before noon to accommodate the education showcase put on by students and staff at the fair. But my teacher husband and I decided to stay home and get some things done. Missing our scones, I remembered a recipe I have been wanting to try out. "7-UP Biscuits".
These make Fair Scones seem like cardboard! I can't even describe them. You just have to make some yourself. Moist, light, tender, delicious just don't even begin to cover it. You want the recipe?
