The Rolling Scones

The Rolling Scones

Taste buds can’t get no satisfaction?

This old time, yet delicious, will get them rockin!

 

2 cups all-purpose flour (or use 2 cups Gluten-free baking mix)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup almond paste
1/3 cup cold unsalted butter (or vegan margarine)
1/3 cup lingonberry jam (found at European grocery stores or use leftover cranberry sauce)
1/3 cup heavy cream (or vegan creamer)
1 large egg (or add ¼ cup more of vegan creamer)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Sliced almonds to top
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Rub the butter and almond paste into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles small peas.

3. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, egg, and extracts. With a spatula, gradually stir the liquid ingredients until the mixture just starts to come together, reserving about 1 tablespoon of the liquid to brush the tops of the scones.

4. Divide the dough in half. Turn the both batches of dough out onto a lightly floured surface and very gently pat each into 8-inch rounds about ¾-inch thick.
5. Spread the lingonberry jam onto one round. Gently place the second round on top of the jam. Using a floured chef’s knife (or bench scraper), cut the dough round into 8 wedges. Transfer the wedges to the baking sheet, spacing the scones at least 1 inch apart. Lightly brush the tops of the scones with the reserved egg-cream mixture and sprinkle liberally with almonds.

5. Bake in the top third of the oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until the tops are golden. Transfer the scones to a wire rack to cool slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve warm.

Yields: 8 scones

Celine Dijon Chicken

Image result for celine dijon chicken recipe

(Original Recipe serves 4, this recipe is doubled, because I have teenagers – this one serves 8)
INGREDIENTS
2 cup unsweetened apple juice
2 Tbsp each Dijon mustard and lemon juice
2 large shallot, minced*
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 tsp olive oil
8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
   (the tenders at Sam’s Club are the size of a “normal” chicken breast I use those, pounded flat.  The chicken breasts in the stores these days are the size of a whole chicken!)
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
2 tsp each honey and cornstarch
*Our local small town grocery store does not carry shallots, so I often skip this, or use onion in place of it.
DIRECTIONS
1 Combine apple juice, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, shallot, thyme, rosemary, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
2 Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook for 2-3 min on each side, until lightly browned. Add apple juice mixture. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, covered, for 5-7 min, until chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet and keep warm.
3 Gently boil remaining liquid for 3 min, until slightly reduced in volume. Mix sour cream, honey and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add to skillet. Cook and stir until sauce is bubbly and has thickened. Pour sauce over warm chicken and serve immediately.
