On those mornings when I am I able to ease leisurely into the day, typically on the weekends, I look forward to a sweet treat that satiates my comfort tooth (Is that a word? Well, it is now.) and pairs beautifully with a hot cup of tea. Don’t you just love those moments of good nibbles, a favorite blend of tea (black tea infused with lavender is my favorite – this one in particular) and reading material to devour? Oh, and time or an ability to lose all track of it? A simple luxury indeed.
Well, such a morning occurred today, so as my way of welcoming the month of February, I stepped into the kitchen to make blueberry scones. Turns out, there’s a reason I don’t make them regularly . . . they’re melt-in-your mouth buttery, scrumptious, amazing. (As I type, I am nibbling on the last few bites from the photo shoot, drizzled in honey. Yum!) While I chose fresh blueberries, you can easily substitute a long list of alternatives – currants, candied ginger, almonds, berries of your choice, lemon zest, just to name a few ideas. In less than 35 minutes, you will have yourself a wonderful morning pastry, and an aroma wafting throughout the house that is sure to create the moment of relaxation and rest we all need from time to time.
