now i know what you are thinking- didn't you say you were going to learn to cook? i promise i will, but for now i will share with you my love for baking.
as far as ingredients go, this recipe was super easy:
1/2 cup of fresh fruit (the recipe asked for pear, but because it's not in season and i had a locally grown apple, i improvised)
1 3/4 cups whole-wheat flour, plus slightly more for rolling
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 a teaspoon baking powder
1/4 granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon demerara sugar (or large granule sugar)
apparently my spatial awareness was not so good... oh well
let me just say that these were thoroughly taste tested! i ate two before i even had them on the cooling rack. now i doubt anyone could say that any scone is healthy, but the upside to these is that they are whole wheat, they can be made with local ingredients, and they are quick and tasty. all my brother and i have to say is "delicious."
