In honor of our special friend Julien Dougherty’s memory, we prepared an array of our favorite dishes. One of our favorite recipes to make for breakfast, and a farmer’s market fan favorite, is our scones. While scones can be challenging to prepare, our recipe simplifies the process into a few easy to follow steps. The result is a light, moist, and airy confection that is the perfect addition to spice up your breakfast.  We’ve included 3 optional variations of the base recipe to appeal to a range of tastes. Feel free to get creative with your mix-ins or toppings, and enjoy!

(Makes 15 Scones)

Ingredients:

1.25 pounds bread flour
.33 pounds sugar
1.2 ounces baking powder
.5 ounces salt
1.125 pounds heavy cream 
1.5 ounces milk

Optional Variations (add to the base):

Raisin – .75 pounds of raisins
Spinach and Feta– .375 pounds of spinach and .375 pounds of feta
Mushroom and Onion– .375 pounds of mushrooms and .375 pounds of red onions

Directions:

Add heavy cream to a mixing bowl. Sift the dry ingredients, and combine with the heavy cream in the mixing bowl. Add any desired optional variation ingredients.  Mix ingredients, taking care to avoid over-mixing. Place the dough on a floured work table, and roll out the dough until it is a half inch thick. Cut the dough with a dough cutter. Brush the pieces with milk, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, and enjoy!
