Picture this………The suns warm rays fall across your sleeping face. The birds are singing you a good morning song. You stretch as you get out of bed, your feet gently slipping into your faithful old tattered slippers. The smell of freshly brewed tea ( or coffee) wafting into your nose. A plate of warm biscuits with cream and jam waiting for you at the table. Wait, the biscuits aren’t biscuits they are scones. Wait, the scones, er, biscuits, um scones? Oh heck who cares what they are! They look delicious just eat one!!!!! They are delicious and heavenly and your day is perfect until it’s time to do the dishes. annnddd…………end scene.
Wouldn’t it be great if everyday was like that. The only flaw in the day is figuring out what your breakfast was. Biscones. Simple a biscuit scone or a scone biscuit. A combination of loveliness no matter how you look at it. Ok, so in my world I had to brew the tea and I had to make the Biscones, but a girl can dream right?
I found this fantastic recipe in one of my newest acquisitions. “The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook”, by Cheryl Day and Griffith Day. The cover jacket of the cookbook drew me to this purchase. Husband and wife standing hand in hand, with her holding a plate of delicious cookies. How cool would that be. Cheryl and Griffith have created a cool little old time bakery with wonderful creations and they made a cookbook book out of it. There are so many recipes in this cookbook I want to try! I guess I will start with recipe number one!
The Biscone is a hybrid between a biscuit and a scone. Tender, light, moist, and flaky are all words which can be used to describe this most fabulous breakfast dish. You can vary the recipe how ever you which to choose. The cookbook suggest: Bacon Biscones, Blueberry Biscones with Lemon-Zest Glaze, and Cinnamon Biscones with Vanilla Drizzle-all of which are on my to do list. Here is the recipe for the most basic Biscone. Like any that has to do with a Biscone is basic.
Please enjoy and I hope in your world you can enjoy the start of the your day just like in my dreams. Oh, I forgot to mention Viggo Mortenson he would be there too and he would be doing the dishes.
