Daring Bakers - January '12 Challenge: Back to Basics (Scones AKA Biscuits)
At first I was confused...
Audax Artifex was our January 2012 Daring Bakers’ host. Aud worked tirelessly to master light and fluffy scones (a/k/a biscuits) to help us create delicious and perfect batches in our own kitchens!
I have to admit that when I saw scones in the title, I was a bit excited. Scones are totally my thing.
And then I read on. And saw that it was biscuits. And I deflated. Because biscuits are totally my nemesis.
And in my head, I know that biscuits and scones are pretty much the same in handling and preparation.
With that thought in mind, biscuits were made. Now, I am not going to come out and say that all my biscuit woes are over and these were the best I have ever made.
I will say that I am glad I didn't push this challenge aside and gave them a shot. I definitely picked up some good pointers and will be a little less wary in the future when the need to make biscuits comes my way.
