Since I'm doing this blog thing now, I thought it would be good for me and good for you (whoever you are) to try out some of the recipes from the Taste section. So as often as I can, I'm going to read the Thursday Taste section, find a fabulous recipe to try, make it that night, and post it for you all to read. As if I didn't already have enough to do!
2 cups all purpose flour
3 tbls sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Zest from one orange
1 1/3 cup heavy cream (I used one cup cream and 1/3 cup milk)
Sugar for dusting
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and make sure one of the racks is in the center.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add in the dried cranberries and stir to combine. Add in your orange zest.
Make a well in the bottom of the bowl and pour in your cream/milk. Stir with a wooden spoon until incorporated and a dough starts to form. Pull out the dough and place on a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough a few times just to make sure everything is incorporated and you have a workable dough.
Separate the dough into two equal pieces and form each of those into a disc about 1 inch thick. Cut each round into four pieces.
|mmmm love those flecks of orange zest!|
But now for the truly intriguing question of the day. How the heck do you pronounce "scone"? I've always said it as rhyming with "bone" or something like that. But according to the Strib, it's actually pronounced as rhyming with "gone". What?!?! Is that for real?? It was hilarious to talk to my co-worker about making scones tonight using that pronunciation, but my go-to source for all things pronunciation related (dictionary.com) confirmed that MY way of saying "scone" is correct. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I need an additional source besides my local paper. (Sorry, Strib.)
