Tuesdays With Dorie: Toasted Almond Scones February 22, 2011

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie was chosen by Mike of Living Out West.  He picked Dorie’s Toasted Almond Scones which are located on pages 28-29 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Who doesn’t love a scone?  Especially straight out of the oven, the flaky biscuity texture is to die for.  I baked these up this morning before I went to work and had a healthy breakfast of 2 scones, a bowl of fruit, and some yogurt.  The scones were perfect.

At first I thought that the recipe didn’t have enough sugar in it (2 Tbsp), but then if you think about what a traditional scone is you usually don’t see too much sugar and it is more about the topping than anything else.  This morning I just had my scones straight up with no toppings.  Which I think was good since I was already getting natural sugars from the fruit (pineapple, strawberries, and bananas) I was eating.  If I ever get a craving for Almond Scones, I will be making this again 🙂

  1. Wonderful! Looks fantastic – and yes, I thought there wasn’t enough sugar to begin with either – but turns out they’re not overly sweet anyway. Glad you enjoyed making the and so happy you baked along with me this week!
