Happy Turkey Day with Scones Day of Love

From everyone here at Meathenge Labs, we wish you a happy Turkey Day!

By the closing of this last work week our family related plans all feel short. A major cooking holiday and all we have to do is hang around in our jammies and bake treats?  Count me in!

Earlier this morning found Tami Numnums and myself in the kitchen.  I purchased the ingredients a week ago and it’s taken me this long to get in to the kitchen and knock these suckers out. Cutting in butter or lard to a flour mixture correctly has always eluded me. I’ve had enough of that and it’s time that Biggles learn how to bake, and bake well enough to at least be edible.

The recipe came from The Joy of Cooking, added 1 cup of frozen blackberries.  Not fricken bad for a first try, came out pretty well.  However, 1 tablespoon of sugar was not nearly enough.  I need to try this again and double it, see what that does.  If I can get a little more sweetness in there, they’ll be perfect and ready to go in to daily if not weekly production.  Easier to make than cookies!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Dr. Biggles.

    Kudo’s on the baking thing–I am gandering at Ruhlman’s Ratios and his Twenty books and the ‘man’ perspective is something I think you would enjoy (I know I am).
    He has done a book or two for Keller and Shuana Fish Lydon is mentioned in them as well for something about a butter cookie.

    His Twenty book has a recipe for bread in a cast-iron dutch oven that just makes sense.

    Anyway, enough rambling.

    Gobble Gobble!

  2. Did you know that if you cut your scones out, lay them not touching on parchment paper or plastic wrap, cover & freeze, you can keep them in the freezer for a couple of weeks? Then you pull them out (only as many as you want) let sit on baking sheet for 5 min at room temp to thaw then bake. Yummy and fresh each time!

  3. Hey Gracie,

    I do believe I remember something about that there somewheres. But there’s no way I can bake just a few at a time. I want them all. I made a Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake with Lemon Frosting two days ago. Within 12 hours it was gone.
