I got the recipe for this in Julian, California when my boyfriend and I went to Julian Tea and Cottage Arts for lunch. They serve these delicious scones with whipped cream and raspberry preserves. The recipe is quite heavy on the butter but it makes for very tender and moist scones. I did not have a food processor so I just ground the butter into the flour using an egg whisk, which worked out fine. You may need more flour than what is listed, I did. Rather than rolling them out I simply dropped them by hand onto greased baking sheets. Enjoy.
The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, 1999. I have also seen Ina make these scones on her cooking show. On the show, she added some orange zest and also walnuts and her friends went crazy over them. I don't remember how much of the zest or walnuts she added, but you don't have to do that and the recipe will still be delicious!
You'll find these bars at Starbucks during special holidays. The texture is like a chewy brownie, but the flavors include white chocolate, zesty orange, and cranberry, finished with a cream cheese frosting. NOTES - this recipe uses a 10x15 pan. One of the photos shows you how to make the right cuts to create signature triangle shapes.
Nov. 2013 note - the bars bought from Starbucks have gone down-hill this year with icing that is flavorless and no real ginger flavor to the bars. Skip Starbucks and make your own!
For Valentine's Day, I used a heart-shaped cookie cutter and tinted the icing pink. They were beautiful!
Yet another scone recipe, I know. This is from the Vegetarian Epicure - called simply Cream Scones originally, but for the purposes of this site, I thought my new title was more descriptive. These are just wonderful.
This has been one of my favorite scone recipes for a long time, and I make these quite often. They are quite easy to mak, and taste so wonderful when eaten about 5 minutes out of the oven, slathered with butter. (note: any leftovers, But I doubt if you will have any, can be frozen, just split and toast!)
Great recipe to use up those holiday cranberries! It's delicious any time of year, though, if you can get the cranberries. Note to World Tour participants - I believe the ingredients are very typical for the Canada region.
