I taped the show that aired with Bubbles making her scones. However, she added an ingredient and did not tell us what it is. It was put in the bowl with a measuring spoon and was white but what was it. She and Paula were cuttin up and she put it in the bowl. I so want to make these. Paula, please give us the recipe. Thank you!
