Ethereal scones

When you have the opportunity to eat a scone – say, they’re an item on a menu or an option at someone’s home, do you ever actually take that choice? Until I met my friend Mimi, the only scones I had ever eaten were heavy, and as dry as dust. Slathering a dry scone with butter and washing it down with tea was the only way to choke it down.

These scones score a perfect ten. They are so ridiculously light and full of flavor, Mimi is famous for them. Her family’s Christmas morning is not complete without them. She will make as many as four batches at a time and drop them off to happy friends and family members. I have opened my front door to Mimi standing there, holding a warm plate of scones. They’re so good, people have talked to her about opening a little café where customers could come and buy them. 

Along with two other friends, we had the pleasure of watching Mimi make these perfect scones last week. We nibbled on our warm scones as we talked, laughed, and observed her in action.

Lemony cranberry oat scones, a perfect recipe modified from Joy of Baking.

Ingredients:

  • 1-¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup unsalted cold butter, cut into pieces
  • ¾ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup sweetened, flaked coconut (optional)
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon essence of lemon extract
  • 1 large egg and 1 tablespoon milk for egg wash
  • Powdered sugar for glaze

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and place rack in center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat sheet and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the butter and using either two knives or a pastry cutter, cut the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add the rolled oats, dried cranberries, lemon zest, and optional coconut and nuts. Mix until combined. Stir in the lemon juice and buttermilk and mix just until dough comes together.

Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough four or five times. Form dough into a domed circle, about 7 or 8 inches in diameter. Cut the dough into 12 wedges. Place the scones onto prepared baking sheet.

In small bowl, whisk together the egg with the milk. Brush tops of scones with egg mixture.

Bake for about 15 -18 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Note: you can bake these very nicely in a convection oven. If you do, it will only take about 14 minutes in the oven.

Remove scones from oven and turn oven to broil. Heavily sprinkle tops of scones with confectioners (powdered) sugar and place under broiler. Broil for just a few seconds, turning the pan as necessary, until the sugar melts and turns golden brown. Transfer baked scones to wire rack to cool.

Talking about food? Brazilian food is the best! I spent christmas and new year there and I definitely loved brazilian barbecue. Also, feijoada is the best thing i've ever ate. And caipirinha is one of the best drinks ever.

Brazilian steak is great
