I recently had to make a dish for my daughter's preschool international dinner. Last year I made my favorite Czech Christmas Bread because my mother's paternal grandmother was born in the former country of Czechoslovakia. By heritage I am Ukranian, German, Czech and English, and my husband is mostly Scottish, Irish and English (and all Canadian) so the options were endless. But a lot of the famous dishes from those countries contain meat and I don't like to cook meat that often and wanted to make something simple and easy that kids might like, and would be convenient to bring to a pot luck.
Traditionally, scones are made with white flour and white sugar, but since those are two of the major reasons for all of the health problems our country faces, I had to make mine slightly different. I still use regular wheat flour, but it's my favorite organic whole wheat pastry variety, and the white sugar is also organic (GMO free) cane sugar. There is still tons of butter to make them flaky and delicate, and the add in options really are endless. About half of the scones that I made were eaten at the dinner, which was fine with me because I brought the rest home and stuck them in the freezer to enjoy as breakfasts and snacks for weeks to come. They make a perfect addition to a kids' school lunch or snack and will keep in the freezer, if well sealed, for a couple of months.
