I was up early this morning putting a butt on the smoker. So, while waiting for the chimney to come up to speed I made some scones.


Plated up.


I made killer heart shapes before putting them in the oven. But when they baked up they kinda lost some of their heart shape.


Butt ready for the smoker.


My cool SIL and her family gave me this platter for Christmas.


Made some blueberry scones too.




Scones went well with a nice cup of joe! It 29 degrees out this morning. Have a great day!

I Love You Scones

Yield: 9 scones

1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

4 1/2 teaspoons strawberry or raspberry preserves
Powdered sugar (I used turbinado sugar instead)

Heat oven to 400 F. Grease cookie sheet.

Beat egg slightly in medium bowl. Stir in milk, applesauce, butter and almond extract.

Stir in remaining ingredients except preserves and powdered sugar just until moistened.

Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls about 3 inches apart onto cookie sheet. Pat into heart shapes about 3 inches wide and 1/2 inch high, using fingers dusted with flour.

Make shallow well in center of each heart, using back of spoon dipped into flour. Place 1/2 teaspoon of the preserves in each well.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar while warm. Serve warm.

Scones are great.

The scallion cheddar cheese scones at kingarthurflour.com are a great side with a steak.





Honey wheat bread rising now. Need to go shape it into loaves.

Yeah, that was two large porterhouse steaks. Smile

I was going to do the rear brakes on one of my wife's cars and a friend that is an excellent mechanic said he'd come over and do it for me.

The scallion cheddar scones are great with an herbed cheese spread.

Have you ever had clotted cream or Double Devon cream on scones? It's fantastic.

Used to not be able to get it stateside. We had the neighbors over a few years ago. The wife is English. I mentioned clotted cream, and the daughter said you can't get it here. I mentioned that British food web sites have started carrying it.

This place is not that far from here: http://britishdelights.com/clotted-cream.htm.

A supermarket in the next town even carries it. I noticed it in with the cheese display.

PaulOinMA, thanks for the info I've never heard of clotted cream or Double Devon cream. I lived in England for two years and don't remember hearing seeing it. Will check it out fo sure. All the best.

Another great spread for a sweet scone that doesn't have a glaze is maple cream. It is also known as maple butter or maple spread.

It's made by continuing to boil maple sap past the maple syrup stage and before granulalted maple sugar.

As there are sugarhouses here, I can get it in the spring.

I bought one at a town fair earlier this year from Warren Farm.

http://www.thewarrenfarm.com/

I've also purchased it online from Carmen Brook Farm.

http://www.cbmaplefarm.com/

As you might expect, you don't need much. It's very sweet.

You can also make your own maple cream from maple syrup. Haven't tried that yet.
