It took me a while to post them, but here are the pictures of the scones I promised you in the original On Scones post.
Here’s the dough, before it’s kneaded slightly and put onto a cookie sheet. I added a bit too much milk by mistake (that’s what I get for not measuring…), and although the dough was moister and stickier than I prefer, the scones still turned out fine.
Two fresh scones; so happy together! I sprinkled more sugar on top than usual, because Richard wanted “sweet” scones. We took it a step further and added some jam later. Normally, I’d just eat them with a pat of butter and maybe some lightly-drizzled honey.
A bit of butter and jam, and we’re good to go.
If I’m going to continue my amateur food photography, I think I may need to invest in a light box and some white plates, because my antique — very lovely, but very aqua — plates just don’t seem to be cutting it. 🙂
