Family traditions are beautiful things. This past 4th of July we were invited to attend an event that I’ve been hearing about for sometime that is a long standing family tradition. Simple and sweet, scones with honey, butter and jam mixed together with family and friends in a lovely backyard. It was just delightful to be included with the Little family. If you want to read more about this, the originator of this event, June Little was written up in a local paper 13 years ago as well as having the recipe included in the cookbook Favorites, a Make A Wish Utah chapter's fabulous collection of recipes. Since June has passed on, her children have carried the making of scones on in their own backyards. One of my daughter’s is lucky enough to marry into this tradition and we’ve been the beneficiaries. With permission I've included some pictures of the weekends event as well as Grandma June's recipe for her famous SCONES! You might want to find a way to wiggle them into one of your families traditions, you won't be sorry.
