Tuesday Tidbits #76 Scones

Hello and Welcome In for Tuesday Tidbits!

Mother’s Day is coming and I have the perfect start for breakfast or brunch! How about…

Strawberry Scones!

Do you know Jenna? Well you should … please follow Jenna at The Painted Apron. She shares amazing recipes that are so delicious. But she is also extremely creative. She is an artist and shares tutorials of her paintings. Many times she adds her paintings along with her recipes. I visited Jenna last week and she shared her Strawberry Orange Scones that she adapted from the recipe of Scott and Chris of The Cafe Sucre Farine

Since I am having a bit more time on my hands because of this crazy Pandemic… I decided to try making their version of Scones. You see… it’s a “new to me” way of making them!

These Strawberry Scones were incredibly moist!

Instead of cutting the butter into the flour, the new method is that you melt the butter and let it cool just a bit …then here is the magic… you add one cup of ice cold heavy whipping cream to the melted butter. Sounds strange but it makes the butter turn into little “globules” as Scott and Chris say.

Then that globule mixture of cream and butter is slowly folded into the flour mixture. I also followed their tip of letting the diced Strawberries dry on a few paper towels for 20 minutes. This tip results in No Soggy Scones!

I also made a Mock version of Devonshire Cream. Recipe for that was found at What’s Cooking America So easy and so delicious!

After they are baked …delightfully moist scones are ready for your table. I got about 15 Scones from Scott and Chris’s recipe. As you can see I did not roll the dough out as I feel they become too tough that way. And the leftovers stored well in a container in the fridge. They have not turned into Hockey Pucks!

Set a pretty table and enjoy the Strawberry Scones!

Speaking of pretty tablescapes please head over to Pam at Everyday Living. She shares beautifully set tables and shares such stunning ideas of how to make your table lovely for your special meals. Her centerpieces are always a spectacular focal point!

I decided to cut some bougainvillea and place them in a vintage green vase. This was so simple but it added a touch of elegance.

I hope you give these Strawberry Scones a try. Please take a look at Jenna’s Version and also Scott and Chris’ version. I’m so happy I did!

Have a beautiful week my friends!
