Blueberry Coffee Cake Scones - it has a streusel topping
Cheese Scones - Cheddar and Parmesan cheese with a dash of red pepper. I served it with chili one night.
Apple Oatmeal Scones - with apples, dates, oatmeal and molasses it's a hearty scone and a great on the go breakfast.
Citrus Curd - I love lemon curd and this recipe takes it to another level with a bit of orange juice and peel.
Table of Contents:
Metric and Imperial Conversions
Introduction: Ensconced in Scones
Sweet Scones (examples: chocolate chip orange, gingerbread, raspberry filled almond)
Savory Scones (examples: hearty grain, potato bacon, rye caraway)
Spreads (examples: curd, clotted cream, maple butter)
The Perfect Tea (the authors guide you through some tea time etiquette and ideas)
The recipes call for you to place the scone batter on a buttered 8-9 circle on a cookie sheet, then cut the scones yourself,then bake, and if necessary re-cut. I also received a scone pan for Christmas and I would highly recommend it. The baking temperature and time does not change and the amount of batter is perfect for the pan.
My only gripe about this book is its size, about 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, and the binding; it's next to impossible to keep the page open face up. I like my cook books to be able to remain open for easy access. Other than that this is a fantastic little book.
Scones make delectable treats for afternoon tea, breakfast, lunch, even midnight snacks. Simply Scones features more than seventy luscious recipes for scones and spreads certain to delight both traditional and adverturesome palates:
Sweet Scones: Oat Current, Triple Chocolate Chunk, Jam-Filled Walnut, Pistachio Fig Scones
Savory Scones: Cheese, Hearty Grain, Pesto, Tex-Mex Scones
Spreads: Apple Butter, Clotted Cream, Yogurt Cheese, Chocolate Nut Butter, Raspberry Cream Cheese Spread
Plus dozens more. Special sections tell how to make perfect scones, and how to serve a scrumptious afternoon tea. If you've never indulged in a batch of fresh-baked scones, there's no reason to miss out now!
The 'Classic Cream Scones' are my all-time favorite scones, but the Apriocot, White Chocolate, and Walnut scones come in a close second. Macadamia Banana Praline and Chocolate Chip Orange are also favorites. And that's just in the 'sweet' section. The savory scones, like Pesto Cheese, Potato Bacon, and Tex-Mex, are another great take on scones, and I love the section of 'spreads' recipes at the back. This book is tiny, but contains a lot of recipes for such a small space. All are simple to make, and simply delicious! If I could only have 1 'teatime' book, this would be the one I would choose.
THE GOOD POINTS. . . There are many varied sharings, & some very Brief tips on Tea & brewing, (Doesn't really give you a reciepe for clotted cream, though), and small enough to tuck away or take with you. The Conversion Table is quite extensive.
It would cost more than I paid to return it, so will donate to Library.
The recipes are very good, but they are printed in 6 point type. That is considered by the printing industry to be the smallest size that should be used. The book itself is 5 ½" x 5 ½". Fortunately, it's a gift for my grandson whose eyes are up to the task.
Everyone I share my scones with... LOVES them! I substitute some items in the recipe, adding Flax or using different gluten-free flours or mixing in coconut flour, adding different nuts... and they ALL come out great!
I bought the Nordic ware Scone pan from Amazon recently, and the 2 1/2 cup flour recipe amount that makes 8 large scones is the perfect amount for the pan! I love this pan so much I am going to purchase another one so I can double my scone production since I freeze them so I can have different types of scones on hand when company comes.
