TWD - Chestnut scones


This week, it's more scones on Tuesday with Dorie.  Andrea of Andrea in the Kitchen selected Dorie's Chestnut Scones.

These scones were my favourite to date, as the chestnut flour gave these scones a subtly unique flavour that you would never identify if you didn't know what was in the scones.

I served these scones with raspberry jam - a delicious taste combination.

To check out some more chestnut scones, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.  Andrea will have the recipe, or buy the book.

Now excuse me, I am off to nibble on another scone ...

Yum! They sound absolutely wonderful with the raspberry jam! :)

Nicole said...

Your scones look so perfect! I couldn't afford the chestnut flour that I did finally find, so I made coconut flour scones. Really tasty!

I'll bet the scones were delicious with the raspberry jam! They were a big hit at our house, so I'm sure I'll be making them again this autumn.

Cindy said...

Also sconed out. But yours make me want to make them soon. Don't know where I'll find chestnut flour....
Yours look yummy.

I don't remember ever having a chestnut. After your review, I'd better try some.

I enjoy baking scones so much and I can't wait to make these. They look wonderful, Cakelaw!

Elin said...

These scones look good...especially using chestnut flour. Dorie's scone recipes are good and I shall try making these. I have yet to try anything out of the book :) Now busy with FFWD but have to find the time to bake something from her 'Baking From My Home To Yours' :)

Wowo these scones are real new to me.Here in winter we get chestnuts freshly baked in the streets if we go to teh shoping street in Brussels. Never made anything with chestnut at home even though last time when I wa sin Franc i bought two small tines of chesnut puree.

Mary said...

They look fantastic! I love chestnuts and scones, but didn't get these made. I think I'll wait till I'm home and the temperature falls a bit. Yes, I'm a heat wimp.

Chestnuts and raspberry sound like a marvelous combination. Your scones look terrific! I couldn't find chestnut flour, so I ended up sitting out. Was it difficult to find in Australia? I know you are usually the one at disadvantage with American-specific ingredients.

They look fabulous! I'm not a fan of chestnuts, so I wonder if I would like chestnut flour. I don't think it's too easy to find in the US.
