TWD- Toasted Almond Scones

February 22, 2011 – Mike of Living Out West chose Toasted Almond Scones on pages 28 and 29 of Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

For me these aren’t ‘traditional’ scones.  I am not upset with the almond mix ins but the use of egg gives a more cake like texture than most scone doughs (I also think it helped the scones stay moist for an extra day or 2).

Overall these were nice.  Not amazing or life changing for my tastebuds but easy enough to eat with jam and whipped cream.

Now go and check the TWD blogroll and see what everyone else thought.
