Cream Scones with Jill (vegan friendly)
I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer. This is my favorite time of year and I am loving the hot, hot weather.
This has to be a short post--my internet service is down and I have 15 minutes to use a library computer.
So, Jill really likes scones and I've never liked them since I find them to be SO dry. Every scone I've ever had. Dry, dry, dry. But, since I completely trust Jill's baking judgement, I agreed to try making homemade scones with her. The recipe we used is from The Art and Soul of Baking.
Making scones is easy! It took just a few minutes to mix up the dough. I used vegan creamer/margarine and kept off the egg wash. I brushed each scone with a bit of water and some sugar. And these scones were NOT dry! They were super tender and moist and just amazingly delicious. They were tender to the point of being sort of crumbly, which is fine since I'll take crumbly over dry any day. Dave and I both loved these scones. Thanks Jill! We are going to experiment with the scone recipe from the Flour cookbook next, so if you're a scone lover, stay tuned.
Please check out Jill's awesome blog to see her gorgeous chocolate scones, and to get a link to the recipe.
