|yeah - i made these.|
I got myself into a bit of a baking frenzy this weekend. It started Saturday morning at about 5 a.m. with 2 loaves of bread, a mushroom and spinach quiche and a mess of scones. See what happens when I stay in on a Friday night? Productivity! This was my first time using this recipe for scones and I was very pleased with the results. Of course, I didn't exactly stick to the recipe, but I did get inspired by it, which seems close enough. I made 2 variations - to one batch I added sliced almonds, dried cherries, dried blueberries and almond extract instead of vanilla, the other batch contained craisins, chopped dried apricots and dried blueberries and vanilla extract. I sprinkled regular granulated white sugar on the tops of the scones instead of oats and raw sugar. They were straight-up delicious - not too sweet, surprisingly light and not dry at all. They would be perfect for Christmas morning - hint, hint.
