Blueberry Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
I made these yesterday and they came out great. I have been looking for a recipe as close to a blueberry scone as I possibly could find, and this is pretty darn close. Right before I found this recipe, I did see a video about baking techniques for scones, which I think made all the difference. So I believe that it's all in the technique. First, I used a whisk to mix up the dry ingredients well. When I added my fresh blueberries, I used my hands, because you don't want the blueberries to burst or get squished while your mixing. Then, when I added my wet mixture to my dry mixture/blueberries, I used my hands again (I didn't have a rubber spatula). Just a slight folding motion until everything was wet. This way, I wasn't over-working it. The batter came out STICKY, but manageable with some flour-covered hands. I made the two small loaves and cut them into triangles. Baked them as so....they were super. I did think, however, that there wasn't enough sugar, because they are not at all sweet, but I think authentic scones aren't supposed to be super sweet. In future attempts I will think about adding maybe 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract to make the blueberry flavor pop more for my blueberry tastes.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
This recipe is a true gem! It's hard to find a simple recipe that's as delicious & flavorful as this! I doubled this recipe (because I knew six servings wouldn't be enough) and served it with the cheese as a topper (because I don't like the cheese in mine.) I didn't add hot pepper sauce either. I made this at a friend's house and she was "tasting" it even before the potatoes were fully done!

Orange Almond Biscotti II

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
I made this for my boyfriend. He fed it to his family and they begged me for more! I used a lot of comments to make this mouthwatering food. I added and handful of white chocolate chips into the dough as well as putting in a total of 2 Tbsp of orange zest & 1/2 tsp of almond extract. As other reviewers commented, yes it is a sticky dough! Instead of rolling it, I wet my hands and covered my hands with a thin layer of flour and formed it on the greased/floured pan. I took the advice of another reviewer and baked it at 320 degrees. Then as a final topping, I added a nice orange glaze of orange juice, orange zest, and confectioner's sugar to one side of the biscotti. I even covered them and ate them a few days later to let them stale up a little bit, and they were still perfect! 5 stars all around for this recipe!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
This was the perfect recipe for beginners in the scone business! I had made a batch for my boyfriend and he devoured them! Of course, I read other reviewers' advice and concocted their successful recipe: I took Lucia de Wagner's advice and mixed accordingly, then I made the orange-cranberry scones that poshbeki suggested,adding an orange glaze of orange peel orange juice, and confectioner's sugar as the came out of the oven. I followed the original recipe in cutting them into 12 big triangles. I let them cool over night and served them up for a nice brunch! My only thing is that cutting them into 12 slices makes them very big!I recommend littler slices. Other than that, 5 stars!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
I made this recipe for this past Thanksgiving and they were a hit! I took the advice of the other reviewers and before I popped the cookies in the oven, I unwrapped and froze the peanut butter cups then immediately put them in each finished cookie once the cookies were baked. Then I put The whole pan in the freezer for a few more minutes to stop the PB cups from melting any further (because despite how chilled they were, they still melted!) They were perfect for the little kiddies running around who love finger foods and for the adults who loved peanut butter!
