i'm a scone snob.
i love them, so i am constantly tempted to try some in restaurants, little bakeries and such...
they are always so deceiving. like those 'bread bagels' you find in grocery stores - they are not bagels. i think the same of scones you find at Bridgehead, Second Cup and the likes - they are scone-like-pastries, not scones.
i like my scones fluffy. buttery. layers of melt in your mouth goodness.
i've worked in a tea house, and i made tons of scones when i was there.
light hands. cold butter. cold ingredients. hot oven.
and Devon cream. and fruit.
i was home today and what better to start the day than such a treat.
Simon likes his with jam. i am a butter and fruit girl.
if you ever need a recipe for scones...
