Scones and Tea


I know, the phrase is tea and scones. Asking someone how they feel about scones, the response is usually of joy while eating one fresh baked. I like mine with afternoon tea, thank you. These flaky biscuits, traditionally pair well with clotted cream and strawberry jam. It's the kind of biscuit that slows down the world and makes everything seem civilized. This week from the Tuesdays With Dorie group, (TWD) the choice is Apple Cheddar Scones. A savory selection, with a cornmeal crunch. The dough comes together quickly. Portioning out each biscuit with an ice cream scoop, makes work of this sticky dough fast and less messy. Now, to decide on a Darjeeling or Earl Grey.
