Last year for my birthday Dad got me The Baling Bible. I’d never actually made any recipe out of it. Mostly I just read through it completely convinced that I am not very good at baking and anything I made wouldn’t turn out very well. So this year when my birthday came up I decided that I needed to step up my game and my confidence. I’ll never get better at baking if I don’t step outside of my comfort zone.
I decided that it would be very nice to have Birthday Scones. I’ve never made scones before, but love to eat them! I went with the Irish Cream Scone from Ms. Beranbaum’s book.
They turned out light and fluffy. I should have cooked them a little less, they were a bit more brown than necessary. All in all a delicious first attempt at scones! My birthday breakfast was great and I learned that I can actually make some of these things that seem daunting!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2016!
