TWD Buttermilk Scones
I'm not sure whether to call it a routine or a rut, but weekend mornings at our house have become very predictable. On Saturday it's always pancakes or waffles, unless we happen to have leftover Challah in which case we make French toast. Occasionally we'll make Swedish pancakes or Dutch babies if we want to mix things up. On Sundays it's back to cereal, toast, or granola. This Saturday when I woke up and came into the living room Charlotte was playing and Paul was reading cookbooks. He felt like having something different for breakfast, and was looking at recipes. He was glad to hear that I was already planning on making these buttermilk scones. I made the rolled version, filled with chopped dried apples and apricots. They were a tiny bit of extra work, but still relatively quick and easy. Fresh out of the oven, Paul said these might be the best scones that "we" have ever made. I'm not sure about the best, we've made lots of good scones, but these were excellent. They were incredibly light and flakey, and the buttermilk gave them a delicious tang. These are definitely something I'll make again, and I'm very glad that I have tons of extras stored in the freezer!
