Irish Scones - Pinterest Success {41}




I think I am one step closer to making the scones I dream about. The ones you see in the pretty tea party photos; tall, perfectly baked and filled with homemade jam. For St. Patrick's Day, I decided to give my scone making attempts another try and with a few tweaks the next time, this may be the recipe to keep. My attempts in the past have produced rather leaden, thin scones, that did not break in half. Still tasty, but definately the wrong texture.

This dough was different, and I could tell right away that it had the correct elasticity and rolled out perfectly. My only mistake was that I rolled it a little too thin; probably closer to 1/2 inch than the 1 inch the recipe called for. I think with baking, like anything else, practice does make perfect. And, if you get to taste the results of that practice, all the better. Happy St. Patrick's week!

  1. Looking yummy . . .
    Top of the mornin' to you . . .

  2. I could go for one now with my coffee! Have a great week.

  3. Yum! This makes me want one this morning:) Enjoy your week ahead dear Vicki, BIG HUGS!

  4. Yum! Just saw an episode of Dinner at Tiffany's where she made scones for high tea...looked so good. Need to give them a try.

  5. It is great when you find a recipe online that really works! Some have been a disaster. Good for you!

  6. The scones look terrific, Vicki! I've never been able to make scones that weren't rock hard! I'm going to check out this recipe. Thanks.

    I read you last post. My oldest daughter is 28. We live just blocks apart but she has a busy life and we get together more spur of the moment. Intentional get togethers sound very special. Love the picture of you two together!


  7. Thanks for sharing on Dishing It & Digging It!!! I really appreciate your participation!
    As for scones - I've made hundreds of scones over the years. And you're right, the thicker you roll them out the better. I usually pat out the dough rather than rolling it and keep it at 1" or so. They are always light and fluffy. Yours look amazing!!

  8. I have never made scones. I will give your recipe a try.

    Thanks for sharing at SYC.

  9. They look lovely (and that's coming from someone from a long line of scone makers!). I never roll out my scones, I simply pat them out. Do you deliver? I'll put the kettle on!

  10. These look so tasty! Going to pin this from the original recipe, thanks for sharing this at #HappinessIsHomemade this week!

  11. These look so good! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!

  12. Oh my goodness, you have made my mouth water . . . those scones look amazing :)

  13. They look wonderful to me! Scones are so's fun to try them all.
    Happy St Pat's.

  14. I love scones and these sound delish! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
