... cherry almond scones

cherry almond scones

up until a few years ago i was always the person who said i didn't really like scones. i found them generally to be too dry and hard. and then i found this recipe from tom douglas' seattle kitchen, which totally changed my mind. obviously, all the butter and sugar and cream in these helps them be superbly delicious. but nothing beats scones hot from the oven.

cherries are my all-time favorite fruit. and almonds are fast becoming my all-time favorite nut (this coming from a person who claims to dislike nuts in general). together they are amazing in these scones. i think that one of the secrets to making these beyond belief is brushing them with heavy cream and sprinkling them with sugar before baking. it gives them a glossy, sugar-crusted top that i love. as with most baked goods, i spread them with a little bit of butter and bunch of jam, and they are incomparable.

  1. Sure the pictures make them look readable but in real life you definitely cant see the sub replica watches as I tried to do in a boutique. The salesman could not read them either without magnification. This hand also replica watches sale the fleur de lis that, of course, pays homage to the French history of the Detroit region. You can read more about that, and what a Pontchartrain is, over on the watches store or on the fount of knowledge known as hublot replica. It looks like one of those weather barometers you find on the walls in old folks homes and around the same size too. The hour and rolex replica sale hands have a distinctive, curved design, while the simple red seconds counter again features the brand logo as its counterweight. The replica watches sale collections are limited edition one offs, certainly not made for everyday wear or pocketbooks.
