second batch coming up

Hat's Scones

500 g All purpose flour (2 C)
75 g granulated sugar (½ C)
14.3 g baking powder (1 Tbsp)
2.85 g table salt (½ tsp)
394 mL heavy whipping cream (1-2/3 C)

Preheat oven to 163°C (325°F). Whisk together dry ingredients in large bowl. Add desired nuts and/or dried fruit not to exceed half the volume of dry mixture. Whisk thoroughly. Make well in center of mixture. Using wooden spoon to stir; slowly add heavy whipping cream while stirring.

Lightly flour the dough until dry ball has formed and easily rolls out of bowl. Roll out onto well floured flat surface. Press evenly until about an inch thick.

Cut into desired shapes and place 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheet. These scones will expand.

Bake for 22-25 minutes. Remove when golden and allow to cool on rack for 5 minutes before glazing or 20 minutes before frosting. Give most of them away or you will wind up eating the first batch before the second comes out of the oven.

TOP 5 CHEESY HEADCANONS

I WAS GOING TO MAKE A LAME JOKE ABOUT HOW THE GRUYERE’S PROBABLY DATING THE BRIE ETC. BUT I COULD NOT RESIST MAKING A LIST OF ACTUAL DEANCAS CHEESY HEADCANONS

  • when they’re alone late at night they’ll put on the Food Network and cuddle and occasionally make out but spend most of their time quietly going “mmmmmm” and “ohhhh, we should make those” and “that’s undercooked, I told you”
  • they do borrow each other’s clothes, Cas shamelessly and in the mornings, Dean shyly and at night, picking up one of Cas’ discarded t-shirts and pulling it on inside out so Cas can’t see the logo and know what Dean’s doing. but Cas knows anyway. of course.

  • they shower together in the mornings and Dean spikes up Cas’ hair with shampoo and Cas massages soap into Dean’s shoulders to ease the tension there

  • when Dean and Cas decide to bake it is a day-long excursion through initial reluctance (Dean), desire to give up when the second batch of cookies still come out tough and burned (Cas), and eventual joy when they get to eat hot delicious choc-chip cookies, almost burning their tongues and kissing melted chocolate off each other’s lips. and the kitchen is an absolute fucking state 

  • Dean kind of doesn’t really want Cas to be able to fix cars because he likes the idea of Cas always needing him to fix up his vehicle, but he does like it when Cas sits with him as he works, and he finds himself talking about all sorts of things. Cas doesn’t learn a lot about fixing cars but he learns a whole lot about fixing Dean.
