I’m at a friend’s place and she has no hand mixer. Again, I was planning on baking thumbprint cookies but she has no hand mixer to cream the butter. Who doesn’t own a hand mixer?!? So, I just made scones again, which required no special equipment.
I took out a few ingredients from the other recipe: I didn’t use orange zest and chocolate chips (I am in a purist mood today). Instead of using vanilla, I used 2 teaspoons of almond extract, which gave the scones a pleasant fragrance and subtle flavor. And, I felt like making round scones, so I used a glass to cut the dough.
