I sometimes wonder if I will feel motivated to clean house when we do not expect overnight visitors? There’s something special about having friends and family stay over. For one, I love the company and love to feed people. New York is a serious vacation city and when I think about it, I recognize that it is fantastic. Of course people want to visit this place! I am happy to see old friends for a cup of coffee, too, because not everyone stays with us. It’s great to connect and when I can, I will make it happen.
This morning I woke up, went for a run and then pulled chocolate chip scone dough out of the fridge. My very first attempt at scone making was so much fun! And boy, were they good.
A couple weeks ago, I went on a mini baking frenzy and decided to make the scone dough and keep it in the freezer. I wrapped the discus-shaped dough up in Saran wrap and it remained frozen until last night.
I used a pastry brush to coat the scones with melted butter and sprinkled turbonado sugar on top. I used a pizza cutter to slice the dough into triangle shaped wedges, placed them on a silicon baking sheet and into the 350 degree oven they went.
When they were lightly browned I tested them with a toothpick only to pull out a chocolate covered toothpick. Wow. I struggle to know just when to remove items from the heat. I gently tapped the top of the scones and they bounced back and held their shape. Time to cool them on a rack and then dig in!
Scones were just waiting to be eaten!
Coffee and Scones for breakfast? But of course! Thanks for coming to visit!!
