Scones are an iffy thing for me - sometimes light and yummy, other times flat and dense, a better door stop than anything else. But this recipe has been the most consistently successful for me, so I went to work and by 8:15, I had this:
|O-mazing, right? And they tasted every bit as good as they look. I held myself to only one (the biggest one|
on the cookie sheet) with a glass of cold milk. Mm-mmm-mm.
I like my scones sweet, so I add at least an additional T of sugar to the dough, plus I brush them with milk and sprinkle more sugar on top before baking. I also give me craisins a rough chop so that they're more spread thru out the scone. Sometimes I add chopped dark chocolate, but I was lazy tonite and didn't bother.
If you love scones, give the recipe a try. I find I do best when I don't over-think it. Just throw every thing together, don't stir too much, and you might end up with an equally gorgeous bunch of scones.
