Since I’m challenging myself+my husband to make new recipes out of our new cookbooks throughout the year (at least one from each book per month), I decided to do mini-review posts of the recipes we make on the blog. I will not be posting the recipe (you can get it yourself in whichever book it comes from), but I’ll post a photo (if possible) of our dish made from the recipe as well as a few bullet-point notes. There’s a category on the blog for these posts called “recipe review 2013.”

It was one of those nights where I couldn’t stop thinking about baked goods. We’d recently seen the episode in which these scones were made, and I just couldn’t resist making a batch.
Recipe: Oatmeal Scones from The Complete America’s Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook 2001-2013, page 526-527
- when did we make this? Saturday, February 23, because I wanted (needed???) a baked good for a snack!
- did we change anything? Not really. I didn’t have quite 1/4 c. of cream, so I filled it in with whole milk.
- what did we like? Rich, moist, flavorful scones. Just the right amount of sweet. Really easy to make, especially with the food processor. And they’re “whole grain,” so that makes them healthy, right? right???
- what didn’t we like? N/A
- will we make it again (any changes in the future)? Yes, definitely. No changes necessary! Though there is a maple-pecan variation that sounds tasty…
