So then it became... the battle of the scones!
In the red corner, we have Stephanie's pick - Feta and Chive Sour Cream Scones. If you're interested in this recipe, check out this recipe. We followed it exactly as outlined. We weren't brave enough to add our own spin and it sounded delicious as is.
In the white corner, it's Cindy's pick - Dill and Sun-dried Tomato "Pizza" Scones.
- In a large bowl, mix well:
- 2 1/2 cups of flour
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3 tsp. baking baking
- 2 tsp. dill
- pinch of fresh ground pepper
- 1/3 slightly rounded shortening
- 2 tbsp. minced sun-dried tomato
Let the battle begin!!!
Stat breakdown...The judges weigh in...
The extra add-ons for each scone were perfect! The paprika and sea salt really the feta, sour cream, and chive, and then the cornmeal added some crunch to the softer dill sun-dried tomato mix.
Overall, there wasn't a clear victor as they were both winners in our eyes! The fact that we successfully accomplished two recipes was a feat in itself! We suggest to try both and decide for yourself...
