Buttermilk Scones - TWD: Baking with Julia

Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking with Julia - 52nd installment. The recipe is Buttermilk Scones.

Check out my Union Jack tea cosy...
These were delicious!  I would definitely turn to this recipe again in the future - the recipe was easy, and they turned out great.  I loved the slightly airy quality of the baked scones - they were not at all dry or dense.

I followed the recipe (more or less) and made half of the scones as triangles, and half as a filled roll.  I mixed raspberry jam with dried blueberries for the filling, and then sprinkled sliced almonds on some of the spirals before baking.    The roll was kind of difficult to roll - it was more like a fold rather than a roll (maybe I should have patted it out more thinly?).  I've made many scones over the year, and this recipe is definitely on the rich side, so more of a special occasion than an every day scone.

  1. Both your versions look great. These were delicious, weren't they? Also, dangerously easy to make.

  2. Love the tea cozy and the almond scones! I agree with you that this is a recipe to keep and come back to - it is deliciously simple.

  3. Great looking scones. So tasty and easy to make. Definitely a must repeat.

  4. I too will be making these scones again...in fact I still have buttermilk in the fridge!
    Great looking scones. It makes me want to bake more right now!!!

  5. How fun you made the rolled version! This is an easy recipe - I will be making again - soon.
