One of the things I've missed while social distancing is scones. I used to go a couple times a week to local coffee shops and get coffee and a scone. It made my mornings a little nicer.
I'm not a baker by any stretch of the imagination, and I suspect my mixing bowl and baking sheet hadn't been used in literal years. But I gave it a go!
I used this recipe from Martha Stewart with one modification: I also added dried cherries. I had read another cherry scone recipe, and cherries sounded good. So I've ended up with chocolate cherry coconut scones, and they're great. I've also been using half and half rather than heavy cream because the containers at the grocery store say "whipping cream," and I don't know if that's the same thing.
Apparently the butter consistency is important, and I watched this video to help explain how to get the butter right.
It takes me about 20 minutes to get them in the oven, so once or twice a week this takes the place of would have been my commute. Extras go in the refrigerator and, while they aren't quite as good, they're still OK two days later.
