My blog has just been born and I've already been neglecting it. I eat and cook wayyy too much to be current! Will try my best to play catch up. Last Thursday I decided to make blueberry scones using the blueberries I bought at Chelsea Market earlier in the week. I really love scones and wanted to use all the blueberries before they went bad. It was my first attempt to bake in my tiny kitchen with a broken oven knob (temperature dial is broken and I can't tell what degree the oven is). I figured scones didn't need to bake under an exact temperature the way cookies or cupcakes would.
I used a recipe from Food Network's Tyler Florence that seemed relatively quick and easy. I followed the recipe exactly, but the dough was too crumbly to form into clumps for baking. I added extra heavy cream and that seemed to make the dough moist enough for me to work with.
The estimated cooking time was suppose to be 20 minutes, but it took me closer to 1.5 hours. I had to keep tasting the scones to check for doneness and had my fill of scones by the time the third batch was finished. The scones tasted pretty good-- slightly doughy and not too sweet with a nice homemade quality. The super simple lemon glaze that I drizzled on top definitely upped it from good to really yummy!
I had a few friends taste test and they all claimed to like them. Overall, I would recommend the recipe to anyone who wants to try making homemade scones. See below for the recipe link.
