Let’s be honest–scones are (or should be) one of the easiest things to make. But there are many little “must know”s that make the process easier and the scones even better. Our User’s Guide to Sconemaking walks you step-by-step through the entire sconemaking process. We begin with how to cut in frozen butter (a must for tender and light scones), and conclude with how to decide when your scone is baked to absolute perfection. In between is everything else–including freezing then baking the dough to ingredient substitutions and additions, to name just a few.
We initially wrote this Guide to Sconemaking to accompany our scone mixes, but everything in the book also applies to your favorite scone recipe. We want to give you the knowledge and confidence to create any flavor you can imagine from a basic recipe or mix. This book is the next best thing to having a professional pastry chef standing next to you in your kitchen. We hope you enjoy and love your scones!
“I’ve been meaning to tell you that I think your User’s Guide is just great! It answered some questions/thoughts I was having about scones and gave me some more ideas. Super job.”
