let’s make a deal

Veronica has been cooking up a storm.  She’s got a freezer full of goodies.  I happened to catch a glimpse of a bag of her homemade blintzes.  And I thought…wouldn’t it be nice if that was mine?  So, I decided to make her a deal I was hoping she could not refuse.  How about a bag of scones for a bag of blintzes?

Silvia gave me this recipe years ago.  I’ve added a little Grand Marnier because it’s booze and I like it.  They take all of 10 minutes to prepare.  Just pop them in the oven the next morning and you have delicious scones!!!!!

White Chocolate Cherry Scones

  • 3 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup dried cherries, soaked in a big splash of Grand Marnier
  • 10 ounces butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 3.5 ounce Lindt white chocolate bar, chopped into small pieces

Combine dry ingredients.

Add butter and white chocolate and mix until mixture resembles course meal.

Add chocolate and buttermilk, mix until just combined.

Shape scones and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Freeze overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°.  Place scones in the oven straight from the freezer, and bake for 15-30 minutes, depending on size.
