Wait…ah ah ah! Hold on there. If you’ve been quietly enjoying this blog – and you know this blog enjoys you – today’s your day to speak up. Leave a little comment so we know you’re out there – then pull up a chair and take a bite! Because snacks are much better when you know who you’re snacking with. When one is doing some virtual snacking. Whatever.
Now, that’s better. Lurk no more! By the way, you picked a good one. I gave that one extra chips.
Want to make your own Apricot Chocolate Chip Scones? Follow this recipe, but omit the orange zest and add 1 cup of chopped dried apricots.
Little Tips that Work: Plump dried apricots can be both sticky and tricky to chop, so try this: use a sharp, wide knife and before you chop, spray both sides of the blade with cooking spray, such as Pam. It works!
Wow. You know when you make an invitation list and you figure, 30% of the people won’t come, and then something like double the guests show up? That’s how I feel. And since so many of you early arrivals snarfed down the Apricot Chocolate Chip, I felt obliged to make more scones. Hope you don’t mind trying out a few Cherry Hazelnut.
