    Okay, I'm just really excited about this right now (maybe I've just had too much permanent marker in my face), so I don't care if you heard it in chat five times already.

    I made scones today! For the first time. And they turned out way better than I thought they would, because my baking adventures are definitely adventures, and things don't often turn out the way they should. Anyway, these ones are f'ing TASTY, mofos. Granted, they aren't the best thing you've ever had (or maybe they are, in which case, go treat yourself), but they are far from bad.

    I ate one just to test, and now I want the rest. Unfortunately, they are for the tea party I'm hosting tomorrow with my tea club. I must wait.

    Funny thing is that I didn't check the amount of flour available at the time (because the concern never comes to mind when you buy 20 lbs of flour), and I was a bit surprised that we only had a jarful. Thus, I could only use the recipe, which calls for 3 c. of flour per batch, twice. Didn't want to bother using a half recipe, using half an egg, etc.

    I haven't taken any pictures, but maybe I will tomorrow. I'm very forgetful when it comes to that, though, especially when it involves food. I see it and the desire to consume simply overwhelms me. You know how it is.

    I really wish you could enjoy these with me! I'm quite proud, and I hope you are too. Especially because it means that I've created another thread (and we all know we needed more of those in here).

    I'm very happy for you, and that's not just because you're a girl.

    Dammit, Rain's got me acting all PC now.

    Being a Brit, I fucking love scones!

    I commend this. Are they filled with sultanas? Or is it a nice, plain scone?

    Fuck I love scones. My gran used to bake them all the time when I went to her house, they seriously are the tits.

    To sum up guys - I like scones.

    Never had a scone. I have fond memories of them being praised in the Redwall books, though. :p

    I would expect that you find the accomplishment quite plain (like my scones, MattAY), since I'm expected to spend all my time in the kitchen anyway.

    Now I know how to make half of you feel like jerks. Score.

    Actually, most of them are plain, but I did make a few with dried cranberries. I really wasn't sure if it would work out, and I'm still not sure that it did. I used Craisins (or whatever), so they're too sweet and too dehydrated. I didn't really have other fruit, except for frozen raspberries. While those would have been great to mix in, I'm saving them to eat with the scones later. They make such an excellent jam.

    To those who haven't had a scone before:

    Fix it. Now.

    I'm surprised that so many people I've talked to about this (because I've talked to _everyone_ about this in the past couple of hours) have never had one, or don't really know what one is. Consider yourselves tasked with trying one out. Also, pics, or it didn't happen. Post in this thread, and you will win... ... ...Points, or something. Everyone loves collecting points, right?

    My mom used to make scones for breakfast. Real scones, not this garbage that Utah thinks is scones.

    Ahah... I forgot... to tell you... that these are "special scones". Sugar and good times compose me! This is so wonderful. I love you all.

    I'm just glad Scones is 6-nil up against Scons. Only jerks call them Scons.

    F***. You.

    I KNEW YOU WOULD DO THIS.

    You're a dick, and the only thing that's good about the Blackhawks is (apparently) ice girls.

    I'm going to give you a kitten, then [. . .] take it away from you.

    We're done.



    I'm removing you from my profile.
