Tartine Baking Project: #22 Buttermilk scones

It took me two mornings to actually muster the energy to get out of bed early in order that we have warm scones for breakfast.  I felt the like Dunkin Doughnuts “Time to make the doughnuts” guy.  I sort of walked slowly down the stairs hoping to see myself walking up the stairs saying, “I already made the doughnuts scones.”  It didn’t happen.  I’m out of the habit of early morning wake-ups, so it was a bit of a struggle at first.  Half way through baking I was wondering why things seemed so out of focus (I thought it was the early rise), then I realized I forgot to put my glasses on.  D’oh!

I’ve never messed around with currants, sadly I didn’t even know they were like fancy raisins!

Unlike the majority of the things you’ll find in the pages of this cookbook, I have actually made scones before.  The normal pre-baking very mild anxiety of tackling a new recipe was nonexistent.  I was actually looking forward to comparing these scones with the scones I’ve made before, because I really love those scones!  The major difference would be the emphasis on keeping chunks of butter in the dough, to keep the scone nice and flaky, which come to find out is a very wise thing to do. 

I’m sure this pile of dough has some fancy French name.  When baking croissants, I learned that the folded rectangle of dough was called a plaque.  I get so excited about this point in baking – this rectangle of scone dough, the flaky tart shell folded and ready to put in a pie dish, the croissant plaque.  I can’t explain what makes me so happy, but just know that it does. 

You see those chunks of butter?  Mmmmm! 

Slightly crisp on the outside with a soft and flaky interior!  I was a wee bit skeptical of the currants, but I’m so happy I gave them a shot!  (Now I can go into some of the other currant-featured recipes with confidence!)  I love the versatility of these scones!  I plan on making them with all sorts of stuff – strawberry shortcake type desserts, or with raspberries mixed in, or with homemade plum jam spread all over it!  Can you tell I love scones?  But, I don’t love them enough to eat twelve over the course of a few days.  We saved some for our breakfast the next day, and then I packed them up and brought them to friends, so they could enjoy some fresh, and even slightly warm, scones too. 

The timing worked out perfectly, and this sleepy-eyed little dude woke up to scones, and insisted on showing it off for the camera.  Dan asked if they could wake up to scones every day.  My first reaction was a fractionally-sleep-deprived maniacal laugh.  But!  They’re good enough that an occasional early wake up would totally be worth it!
