IRISH CREAM SCONES

Irish Cream Scones, The Finer Cookie.

Up front, I forgot to add the baking powder because when I ran out of bread flour, I ventured into the winter weather to fetch more. When I returned, I was so flustered that I forgot! So they were a bit heavy and chewy, or should I say pasty, but on the bright side, they survived the toaster, especially when cold and a day old. Sigh.

  • I combined the dry ingredients with currents and lemon zest.

    Adding lemon to the Irish Scones.

    All the flavour in one bowl.

  • When I returned from the store, I measured the flour only, and then the cream. The batter was sticky and wet, as it should have been. It formed a dough easily and required minimum handling.

    The dough on the counter.

  • Rather than pressing the dough into an 8” cake pan, I simply created a free form 8” round circle and wrapped it up for the fridge.

  • Wanting a high rise (ha! ha!), I pinched each scone along the cut sides and set them in the oven.

  • They rose (sort of ) and I wrapped them in a linen towel to cool.

    The scones out of the oven.

  • They look beautiful, and tasted good enough. Obviously, next time I won’t get flustered, and forget the most important ingredient--baking powder.
