Scones happen to be one of those.
Maybe it has to do with scones sitting in every coffee shop display case, who knows? Believe it or not, you can bake tasty, delicious, delicate scones with this fool proof recipe. Once you have the technique perfected, please feel free to substitute different dried fruit, nuts and flavoring to quell that craving. A student from my cooking class just raves about her chocolate chip version. You can even experiment with savory scones – the possibilities are endless.
The best part? Not only are they fast to whip up, they freeze perfectly!
