Why? Because we can't eat ice cream cones and hot dogs on the beach every day for lunch. Oh no, no. Ok well, actually I'd be fine with that- it's vacation after all! But that's not cost effective, so I make a few goodies to take along with us. I am not above packing the necessary ingredients to make sun tea on our cottage porch either; I sit the jar right next to our drippy bathing suits. Elegant.
The recipe is from the cookbook "Once Upon A Tart"; it's one of my no fail cookbooks. I have yet to find a recipe in it that I did not find scrumptious. Lots of choices to chose from for scrumptiousness too: tarts (had you guessed that one?), baked goods, salads, soups...
Pinecones and Acorns has the recipe posted
My field notes are: milk kefir replaced the buttermilk, and I used fig preserves instead of raspberry because that's what was on hand.
If you aren't in the mood for edible scumptiousness, would you rather this type?
The ultimate would be to eat a warm berry scone while looking at these photos of my nephew and niece.
I'm off to the beach,
