TWD::Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones

This week, our Tuesdays with Dorie recipe comes from Patricia from Life with a Whisk.  I haven't made too many scones in my lifetime.  Especially not the kind you make with your hands.  I'm still not sure if a recipe turns out better because I've gotten in there and used my hands instead of a kitchen appliance.  Though, I have to say, I DO know my appliances pretty darn well and think these scones would have turned out better had I used my food processor.  Then again, I'm having a hard time with recipes turning out in general lately.  With my "bun in the oven" not just my own balance is off, but my baking equilibrium seems to be as well.  Frustrating, to say the least!  
So, as much as I LOVED the flavor in these (I'm a BIG sucker for freshly grated nutmeg..I really do {heart} it), I don't know that I enjoyed the texture of the oats in it.  Call me crazy, but they just seemed like a spice cookie to me.  Maybe I happened to over bake them?  I keep doing that, too.  My oven and I need to get reacquainted.  We've become grossly out of sync!  Sigh.

I did add the drizzle of glaze (powdered sugar, cream and almond flavoring), which just made my taste buds sing!

See how the other TWD bakers fared with their scones (because, really, I'm sure everyone did better than I this  week) by going to the TWD Blogroll.

Or buy yourself a copy of this most incredible book, "Baking: From My Home to Yours" by Dorie Greenspan.  You won't be sorry!!!


  1. I thought these were great, but I do love scones of any kind. I think your glaze would be excellent! Glaze is always good--frosting even better!

  2. I think these sound like great scones. Mmmmmmmmm!
