Mini cakes inspired by a warming mug of chai tea cravings, something I am cradling often now. Cold is not my friend. My dogs are my warming allies, as are herbs. I amaze at those who wear shorts and flip-flops in 40degree weather. Even more so at my 15year old son who wears basketball shorts, a T-shirt and hoodie all winter long, even with wind chill in the teens. In the rare times when he does feel cold, give him a cup of cinnamon tea mixed with milk and honey and he is good. I am not sure these scones would actually be warming, but the mind association taste of the spices gives a little comfort all the same.
After trying several scone formulas, I am indebted to www.displacedhousewife.com who also has the title “scone lady” as she swears by cake flour and freezing dough prior to baking as two essentials to perfect scones. I am not sure these are perfect but I do think they are the best I have ever made.
