Breakfast Scones II
These are delectable but nutritious scones, scented with orange, sweetened with halvah and honey and studded with dried fruit or the new nutritional wunderkindâ€™: blueberries. The halvah is optional but offers a taste of the past, updated in a contemporary treat. These are wonderfully rustic in absolutely delectable to every last crumb â€“ the hue of their baked crusts is pure art. If you prefer, use canola or light olive oil instead of butter. The butter is a natural fat and considering that this recipe makes 12-14 scones, the end result is a mere trace of butter per scone but unrivalled flavor. Just in case: halvah comes off the block or in cans, available in deli's and Middle Eastern Food stores. Halvah is essentially ground of sesame seeds and honey and is just an awesome confection on its own -it is like....exotic fudge (for lack of a better description).
If you really want to up the nutrition of these, use www.BurnbraeFarms.com heart-healthy Omega eggs or you can opt for their organic or free range eggs. But alas, this incredible, wonderful recipe made it to the recipe Hall of Fame and now resides in A Passion for Baking, Marcy Goldman, Oxmoor House 2007.
