Cherry Scones

Over the weekend we had a little clean up day over at our community garden.  I wanted to take a little brunchy snack for everyone, so I opted for scones.  This was the first time I’ve repeated a recipe so far from the cookbook.  I mean, I make some things like pastry cream and tart shells over and over again, but this was the first entire recipe I made again.  And it was exciting!  There are SO MANY of the recipes that I’d like to make again (the brownies come to mind…), I just don’t have the time!

I had some dried cherries from Traverse City (they’re known for their cherries – they have a whole festival to prove it), so I decided they’d make the perfect addition to buttermilk scones.  Scones are one of my favorite things to make – so simple and quick!  As a lover of all things breakfast and brunch, it’s only fitting they hold such an important place in my heart.  The first time I made them using this recipe was a seriously good day in the kitchen.  I think you can quote me saying, “People who don’t like scones are stupid.”  I know, I know.  That’s one bold statement.  I’m sticking to it until someone proves me wrong.

I didn’t get a chance to get pictures of people enjoying the scones.  That was my plan!  We were all in a zombie-like scone trance, then I blinked and they were gone!  I couldn’t be more excited that everyone loved them, I just regret not getting pictures of all the adorable crumb-faced kids thanking me with full mouths and scones in both hands.  That’s pretty much the best part of baking.

    Serious case of snoozing and losing for the Hensley clan, but I’m glad so many little towheaded children (and Jack) got to enjoy them in our stead.
