Tuesdays With Dorie – Buttermilk Scones

by Jessica on July 12, 2011

Buttermilk Scones

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!

I like using buttermilk since it adds that tang to whatever you are making. Good substitute! They are really picture-perfect!

Buttermilk works, too and maybe can assuage the guilt of eating the scones. They look delicious. Thanks for baking with me.

Great idea to sub Buttermilk. Have to try that one. Bet they were delicious.

Your scones look perfect! What a great substitution!

Great substitution, it’s definitely easier to justify two if they don’t have the cream. I love the visible flaky layers in yours!

Buttermilk is always a welcome substitute for just about anything! Your scones look fluffy, and happy. ­čśÇ

Buttermilk would have been a perfect sub-in – these were delicious scones.
