Smells Like Heaven: Assignment 3
I spent the first part of a lazy Saturday morning baking this week’s assignment, and it is an AMAZING recipe. These are honestly some of the best scones I have ever had. Ever. My husband loved them, and our whole apartment now smells delicious to boot.
I didn’t really make many modifications to the recipe this go round—though I did use old fashioned, not quick cook oats, as the purveyor of Smitten Kitchen used herself. I also didn’t use a biscuit cutter to shape them, and just made little mounds with my hands, so the scones are not uniform in size really.
The scones have this marvelously rich flavor… it comes in stages. You get the oatyness, and then a buttery bit, and then finally a sweet maple kick at the end.
We buttered ours (well, technically we used vegan spread) and they were divine that way. I tried a couple bites with some strawberry preserves, which is definitely yummy but does overpower the natural flavors in the scone, so I wouldn’t recommend it for more than a bit or two if you really want to experience the full scone flavor (something I never expected to write, that).
I’ll definitely be making this recipe again and again and again! Once you’ve baked yours, submit you photos and opinion here.
