You’ll notice that these scones are a bit different than the ones my fellow bakers are posting today. With not a drop of heavy cream in the house and no time to run to the store, I subbed in buttermilk… and I’m delightfully glad I did, too. They were dense, but flaky and fluffy at the same time. And they had that sour bite that I get from my favorite biscuits. My only problem is keeping them in the house. Because every time I walk into the kitchen, they stare longingly, calling out for me to take just one more bite!
Lynne of Cafe LynnyLu is this week’s sweet hostess. I just adore her blog and the gorgeous photos that she posts – if you’re looking for the way to make these scones, she’ll have it listed. And don’t forget to check out the other TWD bloggers who baked along this week by clicking over to today’s ‘Leave-Your-Link’ post!
