I thought I might post a favorite recipe of mine once a week or so.  I love to cook – well bake, mostly – but I do enjoy cooking too, as long as I don’t have to stand at the stove for too long.  But baked goods are what I really like to make.  I’ve been on a scone kick lately.  Here’s my go-to recipe for scones.

I love to add dried cranberries and a bit of lemon peel to the dough before kneading.  They’re awesome with a cup of hot tea – slathered with some jam and maybe some whipped cream or cream cheese.  (Or whipped cream and cream cheese mixed together to make a kind of ‘fake’ clotted cream.  Never having had any clotted cream, though, I couldn’t tell you how it compares.  I can’t find it in stores anywhere, but maybe I’m not looking hard enough.  I may need to break down and order some online.)

Do you have a favorite scone recipe?

ETA: Also, I forgot to add that these scones freeze really well!  I’ve been making a double batch and freezing half to have on hand for later.  Just zap them on defrost in the microwave for a minute or two and they taste almost as good as they did straight out of the oven!

  1. Thanks for sharing about the scones! I’m thinking of making or buying them to have during the Royal Wedding. I’ve had them in London, with clotted cream, and I found little jars of clotted cream at World Market, I’ll let you know how authentic it is once we’ve tried it!

    1. Good idea having some during the wedding! 5am is a perfect time for a scone and a nice cup of coffee. 🙂 And I don’t know why I didn’t think to look at World Market for the clotted cream! Be sure to let me know how it compares to the real thing.
