The Cheeseboard’s Currant Scones

It’s not really possible to eat low fat all the time, not without missing out on something really tasty every once in a while, so even if your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier, just keep in mind that eating healthier doesn’t have to mean excluding everything that could be described as “decadent.” It just means eating less of those items. Really good scones ... Read More »

Meyer Lemon Scones

Meyer lemons, as I have mentioned before, are a type of lemon that is actually a hybrid between a tangerine or mandarin orange and a lemon. As a result, the fruit is slightly smaller than your average lemon and significantly sweeter, although it still has a very lemony flavor. Tasting a meyer lemon is more like tasting lemonade – albeit tart lemonade – than a ... Read More »

Nectarine Scones

Normally, I’m not a huge fan of fresh fruit in a scone. Dried fruits are easier to control and produce consistent, flavorful results. I feel like the fresh fruits release too much moisture and have a negative effect on the texture of the final product. This is especially true of berries, but the firmer the fruits get, the better the scone. Apples work fairly well ... Read More »

Vanilla and Ginger Scones

Sugar High Friday’s theme this month is ginger and the event is hosted by Ruth at Once Upon a Feast. Frankly, I had a huge craving for vanilla and couldn’t get it out of my head enough to focus on the ginger. After a while, I gave up on trying not to use vanilla and decided to work with it. I went with some simple ... Read More »

Quick Cheddar and Dill Biscuits

While I always enjoy making yeasted rolls and breads, I don’t always have time to do so. Sometimes this is out of a sheer lack of motivation, while other times it is because I simply haven’t planned enough time to get bread out with the rest of the meal. That is why it is nice to be able to put together something very quick, like ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones

Peanut butter can go on scones, but isn’t usually a part of the scone. It is a fairly dense product and the goal of a scone is to be light and tender. If you treat the peanut butter like butter, however, and cut it in to the flour mixture, you can create a scone that is not only tender but that has a peanut butter ... Read More »

Banana Scones

Normally, I wouldn’t consider bananas to be the kind of fruit that you chop up and mix into baked goods. The soft, velvety texture of bananas seems to lend itself to mashing. But I broke tradition and chopped them up before I added them to these scones. I felt that the texture of the scone would be compromised if I added all that excess moisture. ... Read More »

Peanut Butter and Nutella Swirled Scones

This is the first blogging event that I actually felt compelled to participate in. Not that I mind, though, since it was my post that inspired the event. Barbara, of Winos and Foodies, noticed that the cupcakes were quite popular among bloggers and spread around my appreciation (and others’ appreciation) for the talented Donna Hay. The premise of the event is simple: make a batch ... Read More »
