Chocolate and Cherry Scones

First things first, it’s Pizza Friday! This was last week’s pizza, but it was a good one. Roasted eggplant, roasted red peppers, feta and mozzarella over pizza sauce.

I’m trying a new combination tonight, and if it’s good it will be on the blog in the next couple days.

It’s been a pretty domestic week around here.  I did some laundry, cleaned some counters, and got re-acquainted with my pastry blender.

I also ate way too many Girl Scout cookies, but I don’t wish to discuss that at this time.

I spent lots of time in the kitchen with my little helper.

She was of great assistance while making these scones, which, by the way, are actually kind of a scone-biscuit hybrid. They’re a little softer and less crumbly than scones, and they’re awesome.

My preferred scone-shaping method is the one I learned while working at a bakery. You pat the dough into a circle and cut it into 8 wedges. These were HUGE, though, so you might want to make two circles. Or, you could use a biscuit cutter (that’s what Joy did.) Either way, they’ll come out of the oven delicious.

    I’m so glad you included your scone shaping method because as soon as I saw the first picture I thought “Wow, Cate’s scones look perfect – I wonder if she has a scone pan?”

    And how did I not know you worked in a bakery. Was that in Portland or SLO?

    In SLO, while I was in school getting my teaching credential.
