My friend Mike belongs to a baking/blogging group called “Tuesday’s With Dorie.” The group is baking their way through the wonderful book, “Baking.. from my home to yours” by Dorie Greenspan.
Each week, members of the group bake particular recipes from the book and share their creations on their blogs.
This week, the group baked a recipe selected by Mike, Toasted Almond Scones. When Mike asked me if I would virtually bake along with him, I couldn’t say no. Nor did I want to. I never turn down the opportunity to bake scones.
Scones are biscuit-like pastries or quick breads that are often rolled into round shapes and cut into quarters, then baked, sometimes on a griddle. Scones can be savory or sweet and are usually eaten for breakfast, but are also served with tea and in coffeehouses.
When baking these scones, the kitchen filled with the most incredible aroma. When I pulled them out of the oven, and had my first taste, it was heaven. I’ve made scones before, but these are definitely the best scones I’ve ever had the pleasure of making, baking, and eating!
Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or afternoon tea, these scones are best served with a nice slathering of melted butter, or homemade jam. Anyway you take them, you’ll love them.
Take a moment to visit Mike’s blog, and make sure you visit often. You’ll be inspired not only by his creations, but his photography is amazing. He could make sautéed cardboard look delicious!
