Sunday Scones - a recipe!
The recipe is from Mark Miller's (owner of the Coyote Cafe in Santa Fe and Red Sage in Washington D.C.) Flavored Breads cookbook. We've had this cookbook for years and use it all the time. Pretty much all the muffins I make are from his recipes.
I found his Currant & Brandy Scones recipe for you online here. We often modify it a little - sometimes we use golden raisins instead of the currants and usually we use buttermilk instead of cream. The brandy brings out the flavor of the dried fruit and the alcohol totally evaporates during baking. You can make them without the brandy, but it really adds to the flavor...
Try the recipe! They are easy to make (oh, yes, I almost forgot - we make the dough in a food processor, not by hand...) and they are delicious! You won't be disappointed!!
