Cranberry Scones

In my quest to reproduce scone I had in Ottawa at The Scone Witch, I tried the Irish soda bread recipe I used last year, Raisin Currant Scones

I substituted frozen cranberries for the currants, whipping cream for the milk. They were just about right!

Cook's Illustrated French Apple Cake

I've been dying to try this since I bought the magazine last week, so today, with it's Autumn-like weather, was the prefect day to bake it.

Clinton St Bakery Scones

 Since a trip to Ottawa this past July, where we were lucky enough to stumble on a bakery called "The Scone Witch". While reviews on their service have been rough (we didn't have any problems), their scones are out of this world.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to duplicate the Currant Ginger scone I had, but it's set me off on a scone baking frenzy. This is the latest batch.
