When you have a real down-to-goodness born and bred dear French girlfriend and you serve her a pastry, you know you’re could be treading on sacred ground~~I mean who knows their pastries better than the French. And, I knew I’d hit a homerun out of the park when Frenchie bit into one of these hot dark red cherry biscuit scones because there was a glaze over her eyes and a slow simmering grin that emerged on her face~~oh, yes, this was good, better than other scones that she’d eaten that were too dense and dry.
Gluten-free, tender and flaky, these biscuit-scones are a cross between a fluffy sweet biscuit and a scone. I like them very natural and organic in shape, hence, the big dollops of thick batter on the cookie sheet. The sugar pearls in the batter give you a surprise when you bite into one. Of course, you can substitute just sugar for the sweetness, but finding sugar pearls on the Internet makes this pastry special. And, you’ll be using those sugar pearls for many other recipes, too. Of course, a substitution idea would be to take sugar cubes and coarsely chop them so you still have the ‘chunks’ of sugar in the batter.
Finally, and, yes, the best, is the large sweet burst of dark red cherry goodness that brings an oozing of flavor that’s totally unexpected. Now, as with any of my boholicious recipes, I fully expect you to make them your own by putting on your own signature touches. If you want to use another berry (or none at all), have at it~~that’s what ‘bohemian bold’ cooking’s all about. Delighting in the magnificence of your own seductive power in the kitchen! xoxo peace and sugar pearls ally
