~Tasty Dish~ and I enjoyed baking these scones this morning. The directions are clear and the scones are easy to make. I was out of buttermilk and added a small shot of white vinegar to heavy cream for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes I had a thick creme fraiche-like consistency. Used unbleached flour, butter and for the topping: turbinado aka raw sugar. Fresh, Oregon-grown organic cranberries replaced dried cranberries and I coarsely chopped roughly the same size as dried. I added a little less milk to compensate for moisture but as it turned out it wasn't necessary and added the indicated amount. Thank you. Reviewed for Veg Tag January 2011 for our VIP.

I'm a now vegan who used to make one heck of a souvlaki. I love cooking, I was a huge fan of Moosewood and Molly Katzen prior to going vegan (although that has nothing to do with my choosing the name Katzen - that's just what my German Grandma has called me all my life.) Aside from cooking, I also love scuba diving, cycling, politics, and reading.
