From lemons to lemonaid?

Mr. Ivy and I love scones.  Our friend Carol knows this, so she gave us a couple of boxes of scone mix (along with a basket of other goodies) for Christmas.  The mixes were for cranberry scones and blueberry scones.

There's just one problem.  We don't like cranberries or blueberries.  (How come she hadn't noticed that?)

But, not wanting to look a gift scone in the mouth we decided to use the gift that was given with such love.  To do that, we had to get rid of the offensive dried fruit.  I hauled out the sifter, dumped the cranberry scone mix into it, and sifted away.  Next, I baked the mix (just add egg and milk) and substituted raisins for the cranberries.

Mmm ... mmm ... good!
