Remember the memes making fun of the phrase “Bon Appetit”? If you aren’t familiar you can check out this Buzzfeed article explaining it all. Ever since that meme became popular I have been using “Bone Apple Tea” to make fun of my own cooking skills.
This week I decided to be ambitious by making cherry almond scones. And all I can say is… I tried.
Remember when I said I was cooking on a budget? Well it turns out cherries and almonds are kind of expensive but I decided I deserved a treat.
My particular recipe came from How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman which you can buy on Amazon. However, there are many recipes for scones on the internet and you can easily replace cherries and almonds for other fillings such as blueberries, chocolate chips, cheese, etc.
Even though I don’t particularly get any joy out of cooking, I must say kneading the dough is very relaxing. It’s kind of like adult Play-Doh.
Here are some photos of my process just to guide you. Practice makes perfect I guess!
To be fair, even though they weren’t perfect they are definitely edible and not the ugliest things I have ever seen. Not quite “Bone Apple Tea” status. However, they are certainly not professional looking so I decided to tweet a picture of them the Chef Gordon Ramsay who is known to be quite critical of people’s food images. Fingers crossed he replies! (It’s a little weird that I actually want someone to insult me isn’t it.)
Let me know if I inspired you to make scones! Comment below or reach out to me on Twitter @KristinaAzevedo
