Unexpectedly, I decided to go for the glazed orange scones (p. 44-45) and guess what? I followed the recipe exactly. Ok, I didn't cut them as advised: choosing, instead, to simply plop them on the baking sheet
Okay, you caught me; I did double the glaze recipe. I did this because, well, you can never have enough icing (is that news?). And boy was I right to do so. The icing will dribble off the sides before it hardens (which will take a while), so I advise you to be at the ready with your mini-spatula: scooping and reapplying so as not to waste a drop. You'll thank me later.
Maple Cinnamon Raisin Toasted Walnut Scones
(catchy, isn't it?)
To do so, I used the original recipe and added:
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup toasted walnuts
2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp maple syrup
6 packets of sugar in the raw for sprinkling
Because I thought I
Despite the sugar sprinkle on top, these scones might have been the most crunchy granola thing I've ever created. So much so that I didn't really like them until the 4th one I tried (if at first you don't succeed). However, everyone else seemed to adore them and, because of that, I'll forgive the fact that they were referred to as both muffins (scones!) and rolls (scones!), and were even eaten on at least one occasion...with butter.
Nevertheless, get your scone on!
