One day, I had a hankering to make scones. I had never made them before, and so they felt like a challenge. As with any baked good and my brain, if I have not made it, it’s going to be difficult.
So, I hunted down a recipe from Martha Stewart, and I made them. They were super easy, and to my surprise, very dry and crumbly. I didn’t like them. I wanted to like them. Who doesn’t love a good Martha Stewart scone?
So I modified her recipe a bit, and these are moist and crumbly – perfect for eating with tea, coffee, or milk.
Give them a shot, and tag me on Social if you do.
