After we opened presents on Christmas Day, Sully and I tried out Ree’s recipe for scones. I changed it up a little, substituting egg nog for milk in the frosting, which made them taste very Christmassy!
Sully rolls the dough
Yes, I gently smeared his cheeks with flour for photo effect.
I didn’t crush the pecans as much as I should have.
I like ’em bigger! I’m also afraid of cutting off the tips of my fingers!
Next year she’ll be taller and won’t have to tippy-toe. =(
He really is a big helper!
These things were seriously divine.
My favorite part of the recipe was the splash of coffee in the frosting. I love the word splash. I love coffee. I bathe in it every chance I get. I’m guessing the splash is to give the frosting the maple-color. Either way, I like it. I think my scones are flatter and wider than the Pioneer Woman’s. They still tasted great. I think I ate half of them.
The Pioneer Woman’s cookbook really is terrific. I can’t wait to try all the recipes! In fact, the pineapple upside-down cake (in an iron skillet) is in the oven as I write this.
Do you know how to make scones? What’s your favorite kind?
