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 🙂
