For the second year in a row, I hosted a breakfast for the women in our church with preschool aged kids and their kids (including the ones who are not preschool aged). After breakfast, we caravanned to Homestead Gardens, where we enjoyed the train village and did a bit of Christmas shopping.
For some reason, I didn't take any pictures at my house. Breakfast was again fun and yummy. I tried a few new recipes, one which is certainly a "make again."
White Chocolate Peppermint Scones
(from Tea Time magazine)
2 cups flour
1/3 cup plus 1 TBSP sugar, divided
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 TBSP unsalted butter
3/4 cup white chocolate morsels
1/2 cup peppermint baking chips
3/4 cup chilled buttermilk
1 large egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
Combine dry ingredients and add butter. Combine with hands until you make coarse crumbs. Stir in morsels and peppermint chips. Add wet ingredients. Mix until dough comes together in moist clumps. Place in greased scone pans (or just drop like biscuits). Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 min.
*NOTE* I couldn't find peppermint baking chips, so I used white chocolate candy cane Hershey Kisses instead of them AND the white chocolate morsels (in other words, 1 1/4 cups crushed Kisses).
- I sprinkled the tops with red and green sugar.
PS. Yes, JM, I know it is JANUARY, but it's MY blog and I'll post when I want to. ;o)
