there has been some baking in recent days. i made an old favorite: scones with extra-sharp white cheddar cheese.
the dark spots around the sides are crispy bits of oven-toasted cheese. and, yes, it is as tasty as it sounds.
there was also an experimental batch of biscuits featuring more butter than should ever be allowed in any recipe. i figure that we are pretty much waiting for the apocalypse, so what difference does it make at this point?
this one involved repeated folding and rolling of the dough to create layers that stack like pages in a book.
i am convinced the death-by-butter dough would make for a fantastic pot pie crust, but that adventure will have to wait for some future disappointment in humanity. so, basically... any day now. i need to go hug a cat. be well, everyone.
