Have you ever smelled food wafting through a window or door and been carried away by the scent? Fresh baking bread has to be one of my favourite smells in the world. For a fabulous sensory poem that includes references to smells, see Rupert Brooke's "The Great Lover".
I could become a great lover of this week's Tuesday with Dorie pick from Mike of Living Out West. He chose Dorie's Toasted Almond Scones. The smell of these scones both during baking and afterwards carries you away to another place - it is absolutely heavenly. I took them to work wrapped in a tea towel, and I was reluctant to wash that tea towel, because the gorgeous smell of the toasted almonds in these scones lingered, beckoning me within.
Here is my scone spread with Nuttelex - for work, I split the scones in half and spread them with sour cherry jam.
I only got 8 scones (not 12), but wished for more - these are delightful.
Thanks to Mike for this week's pick - he will have the recipe, or buy the book. To drool over some more of these scones, visit the LYL section at the TWD website.
