Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Making Scones………………..

The secret to the flakiest scones is to start with cold ingredients — cold butter, cold eggs, and cold cream. Similar to making pie crust, using cold ingredients prevents the butter from melting before the scones are baked, leaving it instead to melt in the oven and create a super-flaky end result.

From the EatingWell website and Magazine (http://www.eatingwell.com/) its – The Difference Between Biscuits and Scones, Plus 6 Healthy Recipes. You’ll lve tis one, delicious and healthy Scones. Includes 6 Scone recipes; Chocolate-Cherry Scones, Morning Glory Scones, Lemon-Poppy Seed Scones, Ham and Cheese Scones, Smoked Salmon and Dill Scones, and Sun-Dried Tomato, Thyme and Asiago Scones. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

So, what’s the difference between a scone and a biscuit? The answer generally boils down to one ingredient: eggs. Scones have them, biscuits don’t.
Other than that, the ingredients and process are pretty much the same. Both scones and biscuits are usually made with some combination of flour, baking powder or baking soda (or a combination of both), salt, sugar, milk or buttermilk, eggs (if you’re making scones) and a fat (butter, Crisco, lard). The dry ingredients are mixed together, the fat is “cut in” with a pastry cutter, two knives or your fingers, and the liquid is added until the dough just comes together. The dough is gently kneaded very briefly then cut into circles or triangles and baked………
