I sat down the other day thinking about scones. I like scones. I guess it started when I was a teenager and started collecting teacups and then continued when I got married and had my own home, where I would try all kinds of recipes. I made scones and had friends over for afternoon tea. I don't remember any of the scones being incredible, but I enjoyed them all.
A few years ago when our daughter was born, a friend came by with a gift and scones. They were the best scones I had ever had! They come from a bakery here in town and I've tried hard to recreate them, but I haven't gotten there yet. I did find a recipe that is excellent, so I will share that on our first Saturday, and I will adjust the recipe as I try different types of scones.
I have almost 50 scone varieties on my list of ones to try. Which means, I should be able to do a year of "Saturday Scones". How delicious!! So, come on back every Saturday and see what's cooking! (Er... baking.)
