This wintery, nest-worthy weather has me honing my old lady skills to the max. I'm not even joking. Baking scones. Embroidering in bed. It's only the beginning. Just wait.
Am I a little sad? Maybe. I guess. ALRIGHT. But you know what? Now I have scones, and you don't.
This recipe is closely adapted from Emma's at Food Coma blog. Everything she makes looks so mouth-wateringly delicious! And she's a veggie, so it's always interesting to see what creative meatless options are out there besides pasta and cheese, you know. [I'm not a veggie per se but oftentimes my budget is not my friend and I can't afford a lot of meat. Also I only want to buy free range, good quality, so that reduces my options even more.]
I just added some sugar, increased the milk, and swapped out crannies for candied lemon/orange peel and a couple raisins. I also did an egg-yolk wash on top for shininess. I'm VERY impressed with how these turned out. They were super more-ish.
I made them for Create Society [hence their chopped-in-half-ness] and hope to make them again with fresh crannies one day [although those are very hard to get a hold of here]. Maybe blueberries? Cherries? The mind BOGGLES at the possibilities.
I hope your weekend has been stellar so far! I'm off for a day-long shopping excursion to HobbyCraft with the lovely ladies from CreateSoc committee, then tonight I'm heading to a salsa bar!
