Tuesdays with Dorie: Toasted Almond Scones

Tuesday, February 22



When I saw this week's Tuesdays with Dorie pick, I was so excited! I've been making googly eyes at these scones ever since I bought Dorie's book. Almonds and I are pretty tight. I know I can always turn to them if I think a recipe needs a little pick-me-up. So when almonds actually get to take center stage in a recipe, I'm in the front row, ready to give a standing ovation. And if ever a scone recipe deserves a round of applause, it's this one! I'm not a huge scone fan, and I don't know many scone fans, which is why I don't make them very often. But, based on this recipe, maybe I should start baking these coffee/tea companions more often.

Even if you're not that into scones, I think you'll fall in love with these. They contain an almondy triple threat in the form of ground almonds, almond extract, and toasted sliced almonds. Plus they're so soft and crumbly, it's almost like eating the center of a moist cake. For the recipe, please visit Mike's blog. Thanks, Mike!

  3. Funny about scones.... people either like them. Or don't. :) So glad you made them though - they look stunning (for scones)! And I'm all over almonds as well. Sliced. Thanks for baking along with me this week - your photos are beautiful!

  5. How splendid! I adore almonds too - especially toasted ones - and scones make me happy - unless of course they're dry and tasteless. These look amazing. :-)
