A breakfast treat….straight out of the freezer.
“Who wants a kiss-kiss?” For the last two months, my 4-yr-old grandson would holler that question as he descended the stairs every night after his bath before going to bed.
This past weekend, my son, daughter-in-law, and their two sons moved out of our home where they were living temporarily between houses. While it’s nice to have our house back to ourselves, along with peace, quiet, and less clutter, I sure do miss a few things—like the kiss-kisses, 11-month-old baby chatter and worm crawling, and the excitement of a child when anybody walks in the door.
My daughter-in-law is a wonderful and prolific cook so I didn’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen while they were here, but it was handy to have help eating special treats when I decided to bake. These lemon scones are one example. I love that you can mix, form, and freeze the dough ahead of time, which makes them ideal for serving overnight house guests. I also love using my homemade Greek yogurt (of course, you can use store-bought) in them which translates to higher protein and less fat than the sour cream or whipping cream more often called for in a traditional scone.
