TWD: Toasted Almond Scones


Mike of Living Out West chose Toasted Almond Scones for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.


Wow, I really can't say enough about these scones. They were easy to make, they were soooo light and fluffy and they rose nicely. The taste was delicious(although I did add another couple tablespoons of sugar) and the toasted almonds added a nice crunch.

I will definitely make these again. Next time I'd love to try some dried cherries.

Thanks so much to Mike for a great pick and Dorie for a great recipe. If you'd like to see the recipe you can visit Mike's blog (link above) or Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

Funny, I added more sugar to the flour as well - forgetting about the sugar in the nuts. But they weren't too sweet at all. So glad you enjoyed them and glad you baked along with me this week - they look wondeful!

I also added a little more sugar and almond extract. They were delish. Dried fruit would be great.

I'm happy to see that my scones look like a lot of others since I made a bunch of healthier adaptations. These were good, I agree!
