Your Input is Needed!

I made scones at the request of my husband last week.  We tried a cinnamon scone recipe and everyone loved it including some of our co-workers lucky enough to get one.  I got to use my Great Grandmother‘s bread board for the first time.  It is huge and you can see the knife marks on it from when she’d make noodles and cut them on the board.  Such a piece of history that I am now contributing to for future generations!  I took a number of shots of the board, but could not get that lighter swath above it to disappear, so I’ve decided that is my Great Grandmother’s presence in the room, guiding me as I made those scones.  I wonder, did she ever make scones?  I know she kneaded a lot of bread on that board, so she probably saw me struggling a bit at first with the scone dough and decided to lend a hand.  So – back to the original reason for my post…have you ever tried scones?  If so what is your favorite kind?  I’m looking to gather a bunch of different versions to rotate through making.  Please share!

    I’ve haven’t tried to make scones yet but it’s on my to do list. Is it very hard to make?

    • They are not terribly hard, just different. The dough starts out very clumpy. Once you put it out and start kneading it and the butter gets warm and softens then it gets easier to work with. I’m sure as I continue to make them it will seem easier to me.

        Did you knead by hand or used a mixer? I don’t think I make my dough right because it always end up really hard and dense.

      • I did the scones by hand. Something about the wording of the recipe made me think this is a tender dough, that if kneaded too much it would get tough. I think that was part of my concern. I didn’t want to knead too much for fear the scones would be like rocks, but the kneading I was doing at first was not making the clumps form a larger ball of dough. Next time I may let it sit for a few minutes after combining the ingredients so the butter continues to warm up.
