Scones Are The Best
Scones Are International
Scones are one of the most beloved pastries in the world and with good reason. From their delectable texture to their rich, buttery (and versatile) flavor, there are many reasons why scones are widely considered to be the best pastry — everywhere. In this post, we will uncover some of the main reasons why scones are so beloved by pastry lovers all over the world.
First and foremost, scones have a unique texture that is both fluffy and crumbly at the same time. This texture is achieved through the use of specific ingredients and hand-working of the dough, which causes the dough to rise and creates pockets of air within the pastry. The result is a light, fluffy scone that is perfect for pairing with jam and clotted cream. Don’t be fooled by what is commonly referred to as “scoop scones” where the baker scoops them onto a baking pan. Hand-formed is the preferred method and results in superior texture.
Scones — The Swiss Army Knife of Pastries
Another reason why scones are the best pastry is their versatility. Scones can be sweet or savory and can be flavored with a wide range of ingredients, from fruit and nuts to cheese and herbs — not to mention, meats. This means that there is a scone flavor to suit every taste, whether you prefer something sweet and indulgent or something savory and satisfying.
And, no discussion of why scones are the best pastry would be complete without mentioning their flavor. Scones are made with a generous amount of butter, which gives them a rich, buttery taste that is truly irresistible. Whether you enjoy your scones plain or loaded up with jam and Devonshire cream, the rich, buttery flavor of these pastries is sure to satisfy your taste buds.
The Perfect Scone Pairing
Scones are not just delicious on their own — they also pair perfectly with a wide range of beverages, from tea and coffee to hot chocolate and even champagne. Heck, the Walnut Blue Cheese scone at Savannah Scone Company pairs perfectly with a dry martini. That’s a match made in scone heaven!
The delicate, buttery flavor of scones is the perfect complement to a hot cup of tea, while the light, fluffy texture of the pastry makes it the ideal accompaniment to a glass of bubbly or your favorite adult beverage. The possibilities are endless.
