How to make Orange Cardamom Scones.
Hi everybody! I’m Heather, from Bake, Run, Live! I’m relatively new at blogging (August will be 1 year), so I am completely thrilled and honored that Chef Dennis has asked me to do a guest post! I admire Chef Dennis, both for his recipes and for being willing to share his blogging knowledge with us. I have learned a great deal, just by reading his “Ask Chef Dennis” posts.
I was tempted to follow Chef Dennis’ recent recipe lead, and make something with strawberries. Sadly, locally grown strawberries are still a few more weeks out in my area. So, I’ll just have to make do with bookmarking all those strawberry posts (gelato- I’m looking at you!).
So, for my guest post, I decided to make Orange Cardamom Scones. I love all things breakfast, and I really enjoy making a batch of scones on Saturday mornings after my long run (have to replenish those carbs, you know!). Scones are easy to put together and are really versatile- kind of like cookies (and I love cookies!). This particular batch has cardamom and orange zest in the scones, then I juiced the orange and made a quick glaze (I like things sweet). You could easily leave off the orange glaze, but I like the extra pop of citrus.
A scone and a cup of hot chocolate, and I’m ready to tackle my Saturday to-do list (item #1- take a nap!).
Thank you for reading…and Chef Dennis, thank you for letting me spread my blogging wings! And I’ll leave you with the tagline that I put on all my recipe posts…”Made with love, not calories!”
