A few weeks ago my little sister wrote on my facebook wall, “I’m holding you personally responsible for the 5lbs I’ve gained today from those chocolate chip scones.” Well, don’t hold me responsible! After all, it was temptress Jenni from Beautiful Nest who seduced us all with her voodoo-scone-charm in the first place! I am merely a brainwashed agent, proselytizing the ways-of-the-scone, drawing in converts, and packing on the pounds as I go!
So today, I decided to share some scone love with our beloved house-twin neighbors. Besides, they share their green beans and cucumbers with us, so it seemed only fair that in return I should contribute to their dessert demise. Amen?
I used Temptress Jenni’s recipe found here. (Tip: I decrease the cream to 1 cup and add more only if needed. Knead dough with hands first before adding more liquid and then add cream a tablespoon at a time. Dough should be dry and not wet.)
Once my dough was kneaded, I divided the batch evenly into three separate bowl. In one bowl, I added a small splash (1/2 t?) of lemon extract and mixed in fresh blueberries.
In the second bowl, I kneaded in some white chocolate chips and craisins.
And in the third bowl, I added chocolate chips. On a floured surface, I patted each flavor into a round pancake shape about 1/2 inch thick. Then, I cut each into fourths and placed all my little slices on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Once cooled, I packaged the scones by twos in wax paper, tied the ends in twine, and attached one of these adorable free printables by Miss Cutiepie. I think I’ve made more scone converts in the process! Remember: I am merely the messenger spreading the scone message of love. If your butt is spreading, then that is an indication that it’s time to start spreading the scone love around! Go make some for your neighbors.
