TWD: Toasted Almond Scones
This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie selection is Toasted Almond Scones. On Sunday morning I gave Josh a choice of three things for breakfast: cereal, waffles, or these scones. I was surprised that he didn’t select the option you can (appropriately) cover in maple syrup, though pleased, since I wanted to try these. I would have made them Monday if he had chosen waffles, but the sooner the better. These were terrific scones. I admit, I thought it seemed a little fussy to grind some of the almonds and then chop some – perhaps I’m just lazy. It was totally worth it, though, since the chopped almonds gave the flaky scones some nice texture and added a lot of flavor. These scones were yummy plain and also with a dab of apricot preserves.
This recipe rated a 7.5 for Deliciousness and a 3.25 for Effort, for an EDR of 2.3. Many thanks to Mike of Living Out West for a delightful selection. You can find the recipe here on Mike’s site and visit the TWD site for more scones.
