Just like mom makes.
Well, I hope. I have actually never tasted my mom’s scones as they entered her repertoire after I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. And I usually don’t post recipes that I haven’t made many times, but this recipe is hers – save for the gluten free conversion. I trust it.
The gluten free version (bellow) is a bit heavier and biscuit like than I remember scones to be and it should be eaten warm. We made some last night and I reheated them briefly this morning for breakfast and they were still tasty. Fresh is best, but reheated is delicious too.
So far we’ve made vanilla bean scones and the ones pictured above are Coconut-Almond scones (or “Grammy Cones” as my youngest thinks they are called). Next up? Cranberry! I’m thinking some dried cranberries and maybe even a handful of white chocolate chips? Ro – my youngest daughter – likes to cook and baking is new. She says she “isn’t patient enough” to wait for things to get out of the oven. (Ha!) These, however, have made her curious. Tonight she told me she wants to try pumpkin “grammy cones”. Guess we will toss in some pepitas or maybe stir in some pureed pumpkin. So many options… so many summer days to explore new ideas.
Ah…. it feels so good to be on ‘vacation” right now. This last school year just about wiped me out. 😀
