How to Make the Best Buttery Scones | Kitchn Scones, buttery baked biscuit-like treats, are descendants of a Scottish oat, barley, or wheat bread. In the U.S. they have increased in popularity over the last 25 years, but scones still tend to get pigeonholed as fancy breakfast or formal high-tea fare. Once you get the hang of the technique of making the dough, you'll be serving them with ease for snacks, brunches, breakfasts, and even for your own casual tea parties at home. Two Techniques for Better Scones, Every Time Keep it cold: Just like making pie crust or biscuits, the key to making scones flaky is cold everything: cold butter, cold cream, cold eggs, and cold surface if you can. Special Flour Makes an Extra-Special Scone Different flours have different protein amounts and work very differently. Making It Even Better with Simple, Smart Baking Science Lemon juice is not part of classic scones, but the zest definitely is. Place the currants in a small glass or other nonreactive bowl, add the lemon juice and zest and stir well.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies When I was really young, I had an imaginary friend. His name was Zozo, and he enjoyed getting me into trouble. Some of his antics included drawing on the walls of my room with permanent marker, telling the babysitter I had no bedtime, pulling my little sister’s hair, and sneaking so many tastes of cookie dough while baking that very few cookies were actually ever made. Somehow, my parents never bought the excuse it was my imaginary friend behind all of this mischief. By the way, my childhood imaginary friend is still around and causing trouble. Only now the trouble comes in the form of convincing me it’s a good idea to watch Netflix instead of going to the gym or doing the dishes. Seriously, this guy is evil. I don’t know why we’re still friends… Cookie Dough Brownies Preheat oven to 330F. Click for: Brownie Nutrition Facts Question of the Day: Did you have an imaginary friend when you were younger?

Yogurt and Honey Olive Oil Cake | Kitchn I have so much to tell you about this cake. At its heart, it's humble — it comes together from a few pantry ingredients and bakes up to be far from a show-off. But slice into it and before you even take one bite, you'll suspect it's one of the most moist and tender cakes you've ever baked. At first it's sweetly rich from the honey, but the tang from the Greek yogurt keeps it in line. A Simple Cake That Tastes Special This cake is one that's all about balance — it's sweet, savory, and aromatic. 5 Ways to Bring the Flavors of Greece to Your Weeknight One of the most fun ways to spice up your weeknight dinner routine is by exploring a new cuisine — and it's not as hard as you may think.

Mixed Berry & Jasmine Tea Scones | Kitchn You can’t go wrong with scones for Mother’s Day. And you almost have no excuse not to make something home-baked, especially when you can consider these mixed berry scones laced with delicate jasmine come together in just twenty minutes with the help of a food processor. The recipe you see here is my base recipe for almost all my scones. Of course once in awhile, I’ll get over-indulgent and make them with a toffee and chocolate chip spin, but today I’m keeping it fruity with some mixed berries. And in case you are wondering if heating the cream then steeping the tea in it would extract more flavor — it doesn’t. These scones really do come together quickly. Mixed Berry & Jasmine Tea Scones Serves 6 to 8 Heat oven to 375°F. Place jasmine tea leaves in a coffee grinder or food processor, and process to a fine grind. Transfer the dough to a heavily-floured work surface and pat it into 1-inch-thick square. Recipe Notes

Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies When I was 5 years old, I earned the nickname Cookie Monster from my grandfather, after he caught me repeatedly sneaking chocolate chip cookies from the dining room table.

These chips, compared to store-bought versions, are more cost effective, healthy, and delicious. They also make for easy entertaining… which doesn’t hurt, now does it? *Note, I recommend using Organic produce when available. The Directions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Like this: Like Loading...
