Few things can compare with a buttery scone, warm from the oven, though these are perfectly good at room temperature, too. In honor of D-day, they are packed with three types of dried fruits: sweet cherries, golden raisins and dried apricots. These create a rich blend of flavors and lend a lot of sweetness to the scones, but feel free so pick and choose any dried fruits you like, from blueberries to currants. The scones are absolutely delicious with a cup of coffee or tea.
"D" news and stories
Darling, do you dare drizzle Danish Blue on your Dover sole or dunk your doughnuts in dark chocolate?
We hope you do, daaaah-ling, because next Wednesday, January 18th, Slashfood is eating the letter D! That's right, Slashfood's next theme day isn't a dish; it's not an ingredient; it's the fourth letter of the English alphabet - D.
Don't ask us how we came up with the idea. We were all a little hungover from the last Spirited Cooking theme day, and coming out of a deep Holiday food coma when we all decided that "D" was absolutely brilliant. Yes, brilliant.
So, dust off your Webster's, turn to page 471, and start looking for something to make that starts with "D." Throughout this week, we'll have some suggestions and ideas to bring out your inner-Scrabble-champion. I couldn't think of a single vegetable except daikon.
On Wednesday, we'll give you a place to post a link to your lovely creations, and who knows? We might even have prizes!
