Unlike my beautiful fig cake experiment this year- my sisters idea for lavender rosemary scones turned out a little different. After all- we gotta share the successes and the flops right?
We found this recipe off of Pinterest here. Now- disclaimer- I totally agree that I was the problem with this recipe. LOL.
However, before you try it, be sure to note one important detail that wasn’t very clear in the instructions. There are two different types of sugar used for the scones- confectionery (typical anytime you are making an icing or a glaze) and granulated (regular white sugar). I made the genius mistake of adding both the granulated and confectionery sugar to the batter for the scones since the instructions said to add the sugar. The confectionery sugar should have never gone in the mix and as a result our batter was WAY to sticky, thin, and unworkable.
But that’s when our oh-so-flexible family likes to Jerry-rig the situation to work anyway! So we froze the batter until it hardened a little more so we could work with it, and proceeded to create our scones. A Christmas miracle!
Due to my bonehead move, we knew they wouldn’t rise- so we all agreed we would have lavender rosemary cookies instead of scones for Christmas. Had they risen, I’m sure this recipe is to die for! But be warned- be sure to do your research first if a recipe seems unclear in its instructions.
Thankfully it wasn’t a total loss and my sister is really good at forgiving so we ended up making up for it with our usual spread of holiday favorites anyway!
Let me know your experience with this recipe or something like it and feel free to laugh with me about my baking flops! After all, we can’t always win can we?
Merry Christmas ya’ filthy mermaids
