scones :: not just for breakfast anymore!
i love scones. i'm big fan of the scone. i fell in love with them when i lived on Martha's Vineyard and would frequent the Black Dog bakery. they made currant scones that were just heavenly. i still dream of them from time to time. there are some tastes you just can't recreate in your own kitchen, try as you might! i even got their cookbook, but alas, no scone recipe was within. i have plans to someday set about taking a year and making every recipe in that book during that year because it all sounds so good (and i'm a nostalgic type), but i digress. . .
for this scone-making adventure, i used the quirky cupcake's recipe. we put cranberries and walnuts in ours and they were quite tasty!! this recipe yields a cakier scone than i am used to, but i liked it a lot. and, as you can see, it was a fun project for my little dude. he helped mix it all up, crack eggs, brush with cream and sprinkle sugar. the hardest part for him is waiting. "are they done NOW, mommy?"
patience, young skywalker.
slap a little butter and jam on those bad-boys and we snacked like kings. (thanks quirky cupcake!)
