Well, this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie challenge: Apple Cheddar Scones chosen by Karina of The Floured Apron. This post was originally going to be about how I didn’t grow up in a cheese eating family and never in a million years would we have added cheddar to any baked good but I was game. Well, that was until the scones (using that word VERY liberally) came out of the oven…
I do not know what happened but they looked about as much like a scone as a rock looks like blueberry pie. No resemblance at all. When my older son saw them coming out he asked when we could eat the cookies. “They’re not cookies.” “OK, when can we eat the pancakes?” Not muffin, not biscuit and certainly not scone.
I am certainly no expert baker but I have made scones before, and (possibly miraculously?) they looked, smelled and tasted like a scone. Maybe I overmixed? I was confused by the last “kneading” step, but what do I know? I also made them eggless so Jamie could enjoy them, too. BUT I make lots of things eggless with no problem. See muffins I made Monday below. No eggs – not flat.
I was a little distracted on Sunday — scone day. I made this triple layer chocolate cake for my mom Patty’s birthday (it was FABULOUS) but still?
I was on my way to the trash with my precious little disks when my Grandma Sophie’s inner spirit took over and turned me to the freezer instead. So, I am looking for suggestions as to what to do with six apple cheddar sconedisks and six apple cinnamon sconedisks (I couldn’t make them all with cheddar…what if it was nasty?). Suggestions, anyone?
Next week: double crusted blueberry pie. Yeah, I have made lots of pie but let’s not get our hopes up. To see an army of fabulous scony looking scones click here.
