Tuesday Tip

Dough by Hand

Recently I’ve been making all pie, biscuit, scone, and now galette dough by hand with a fork, pastry blender and my fingers. This is the only way to go. Once you do it a few times and know the look, feel, and texture of the dough you won’t go back to a processor or mixer. I’ve found this is the best way to ensure a light, tender, flaky crust or baked good. Plus, in the end it takes no longer than pulling out a machine and cleaning it after use. It’s also more fun to get your hands messy.

Blueberry Scones

Scones are a treat in our house.  I don’t make them often, but every now and then I’ll make them on a Saturday for a special treat.  I like to enjoy them with a nice hot cup of coffee or black tea.  They are also great for a snack.  I love them warm out of the oven on a cold, foggy morning.   The yogurt variation may be even better than the buttermilk version.
