This weekend we baked the most amazing raspberry pistachio and lemon scones.
The weather was gloomy and overcast thanks to a cyclone brewing up the coast so we opted to stay in and spend some much needed time at home.
We played, read, napped, ate and baked.
It was perfection.
Amongst our cooking adventures (we also roasted a gorgeous pork belly) Grace decided we should make some scones. Both Grace and Harry had baked them at kindy last week and neither of them have stop chattering about how fun the dough was so play with.
So scones it was.
Our best. ever. blueberry scones are our usual ‘go-to’ but with no blueberries in sight we decided for a raspberry pistachio and lemon version instead.
This raspberry pistachio and lemon version kicks the blueberry scones butt.
Not only are the scones utterly beautiful thanks to the wonderful mix of pink and green hues. But the gorgeously golden crust of the scone is laced with drizzles of lemon icing and topped with crunchy flecks of pistachio – scone perfection.
We enjoyed our scones for afternoon tea nestled on a picnic rug under the window so we could take in the ever changing shapes of the grey clouds. Grace poured our pretend cups of tea and Harry dished out the scones on teeny tiny plates – it was weekend magic.
I hope these scones bring a little delicious magic into your kitchen.
