While technically not scones, Welsh cakes are similar enough in their use that I’m putting this recipe here.


Quick Breads

I admit, I love fruitcake. This Quick Fruitcake by King Arthur sounds delicious!


Cilantro-lime rice is one of the things that makes life worth living. This recipe calls for jasmine rice. Don’t sweat it – use your preferred rice, cooking it as you would for plain white rice. The lime and cilantro go in after the rice is cooked.

The best rice pudding in the world.


Almond paste is the needed for so many delicious recipes, including marzipan. You can make it yourself!

Tempering chocolate is so important in making candy or other sweet-making applications. It’s not as difficult as it might seem.

Cinnamon Sugared Almonds


Make these dark-chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons and you will thank me – well, you’ll thank Barefeet in the Kitchen, really, but …). Super easy, super delicious. I used my small scoop (1 tblspn size) and got 24 macaroons. The recipe indicates 6 oz of dark chocolate but I ended up using 15 oz. No such thing as too much chocolate.

These Perfect Single-Serving Size Chocolate Chip Cookies are the greatest! I add about a cup of chopped pecans, and make “normal” size cookies, so I actually get between 15 and 18 cookies out of a recipe (I eyeball the quantity of nuts, so sometimes I get the higher number, sometimes the lower). It’s far quicker than making even a half batch recipe of chocolate chip cookies because they all fit on one cookie sheet.


Ridiculously Easy Buttermilk Biscuits has science behind them!


These double-decker filled scones by King Arthur are fantastic.
