Puyallup Fair Scones (Fisher Scones)

Submitted by: JEEP_GIRL

Introduction

A trip to the Puyallup Fair (The Western Washington Fair) isn't complete without this Northwest tradition! They sell like 80,000 of these a day, topped with a big glob of raspberry jam. They are good cold, but best when they are warm.

(And its pronounced "pew-ALLup").

These are NOT low in calories!! I had to make them for my sons schools Mothers Day Tea (of course I sampled one while there) so I needed to calculate out the recipe. They are super delicous though, eat lots of veggies the rest of the day to make up for it! LOL

  • It was great to come across your Puyallup Fair scone recipe.
    These are grrrrreat and .so is the Fair.
    Only problem I found was the number of people your recipe serves.
    In my estimation it would only serve 2. ;-) - 11/26/12

  • One of the highlights of going to a fair is getting fresh warm Fisher scones. Thanks for a recipe I can make at home from scratch. Besides eating them warm with raspberry jam, I also like to use them for strawberry shortcake (Split a scone, add loads of mashed strawberries and whipped cream....)

  • OMG thank you SO much for posting this - These and "Earthquake burgers" were the staple for me growing up when we would "do the Puyallup" - definitely one of my all time favorite comfort foods. I wonder if I did a half and half mixture of wheat/white flour if they would turn out ok? - 3/31/10

  • I love that you entered this... Someone just brought me a scone fresh from Puyallup and I'm trying to determine if I have enough calories left in my day to eat it! I can't believe that I usually will eat at least two of these when I got to the fair!! - 9/21/09
