Tuesdays with Dorie: Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones
This was my second time making scones from scratch. It was a good experience. Though I don't think I'm the scone master quite yet. I think will take years of practice and batches and batches of scones.
This particular dough was sticky-sticky! It was filled with lots of butter, buttermilk, oatmeal and fresh nutmeg. I also decided to fold some diced up prunes to the mix. I just love prunes.
I wasn't feeling the best when I made these, so my mom came to visit and we enjoyed these scones straight out of the oven. Fit with a healthy (or really, not so healthy) slab of butter on them. They were good. And it's so nice to bake for my mom, since she's been baking for me my whole life.
These were easy and pretty quick. They didn't blow me out of the water, but I enjoyed them. I think with scones I like to eat them more than make them.
Grab the recipe from Patricia's blog, Life with a Whisk. And see how my fellow Tuesdays with Dorie Baker's liked this oatmeal nutmeg scone recipe, here.
