This is my first Tuesdays with Dorie post, the raison d’etre for Confectiona’s Realm. I’m so excited!
Dorie’s recipe is for Apple Cheddar Scones, but I didn’t have any dried apples. I did have dried pears, so there we are.
I love making scones for breakfast, because I can mix all the dry ingredients the night before and measure out all the add-ins. Then in the morning it takes 10 minutes to get them into the oven, and 20 minutes after that we’re eating.
These scones were excellent, moist and flavorful without being full of chunks of things, which can be so distracting early in the morning. We had them with Earth Balance and the strawberry jam I made last week, and everyone was content. (Although Husband did complain that they were too “baking powdery,” whatever that means. Didn’t stop him from eating his allotted one and half, though.)
