I’m still on a bit of a baking kick, but rather that toil away this weekend on some more bagels, I took it easy and tried my hand at some raisin scones. Scones are really easy to create, and they take almost no time at all. They essentially are just sweet southern biscuits. They are prepared in the same manner, but a different fat profile is used (butter rather than shortening, heavy cream in stead of butter milk). I used this here recipe. They turned out damn good. Nice and sweet with that buttery, flaky inside. Mmmm. I’m definitely going to experiment with this and see where it takes me. When blueberries come into full season, it’s on.
