I have been craving scones for some time now, and after realizing that satisfying this craving by induling in afternoon tea at the Drake Hotel for the past three weekends solely for the scones is pretty ridiculous and close to madness, it had to stop.
So, how jazzed was I about baking this week’s assignment? Pretty excited because these buttermilk scones were seriously some of the best scones I’ve ever had. Who knew that the tablespoon of orange zest would really bring such lovely flavor. Very nice!
