Scones

I baked a half batch of scones for Fuzz this morning, and I must say this is one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made. You just mix the dry ingredients, pour in the cream, shape, cut and bake. I have Katrina to thank for recommending this recipe, and her friend Chef Paige to thank […]

scones

I found this scone recipe while perusing Food TV Magazine, and in an attempt to avoid housework, I went straight to the kitchen to make a batch. Somewhere along the way I realized a) I had no business making scones at that moment and b) we didn’t have any butter. So I finished mixing the […]

iced pumpkin scones

Happy Halloween Morn! To celebrate, I made some pumpkin scones using a popular recipe that’s said to be similar to the scones served at Starbucks. In the past, I’ve made these with add-ins such as butterscotch chips and pecans and omitted both glazes. This time, I made the scones as directed with both glazes. Well, […]

Chocolate Brownie Scones

chocolate-brownie-scones

These are like a cross between brownies, biscuits and shortbread – sweet (but not too sweet), flaky, crumbly around the edges and overall just really delicious. With all the chocolate, they’re good for dessert buy they’re light enough to where you can trick yourself into thinking they’re a halfway decent breakfast. And hey, if you make them with white whole wheat flour you can say they’re better than doughnuts! These are a definite repeater, though it will be a while because scones are a treat and it takes us a while to eat a batch. In fact, for this recipe I made it as directed, but only baked up 4 scones. The rest of the triangles were wrapped individually and frozen. In most cases, I’ve been able to bake scones “straight-from-frozen” by just adding a few extra minutes onto the cook time.

School’s out and Fuzz and I are enjoying some lazy days before various camps start. Next week’s breakfasts will be rushed (as usual) so for the next two days, we’re going to splurge a little. Around here, a splurge means scones. Fuzz loves the pumpkin ones best, but I decided to try a new flavor […]

Pumpkin-Pecan-Butterscotch Scones

pumpkin-scone

This recipe is adapted from one that’s supposed to be a Starbuck’s clone and which originally called for glaze and frosting. But I left off the toppings, added butterscotch chips and pecans, then sprinkled the tops with some vanilla icing sugar I brought home from Italy. I put the icing sugar container in the photo […]

Streusel Scone

Today’s recipe is for my mom, who recently moved to town and has been enjoying more of my cookies. Since she lives alone, I’ve been giving her bags of frozen, pre-portioned rounds of dough and letting her bake the cookies herself. The other day she called to say how much she loves doing …

These are better than what you’d find in most coffee shops and they don’t dry out as quickly as other scones. Thanks to Cooks Illustrated for coming up with the original […]
