TWD—Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones With Apricots and Pecans

TWD--Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones w/pecans and apricots 5-23-11

We made scones this week for Tuesdays With Dorie.  Patricia from Life With a Whisk chose the recipe and she’ll have the recipe on her blog.  I really like scones.  Unfortunately, I’m the only one around here who does.  I know I could have froze some of the unbaked scones and I should have, but they just all nicely lined themselves up on the baking sheet, so they all got baked.DSCF5248

Twelve perfect looking scones with some unique ingredients like oats, buttermilk, pecans, apricots and a touch of nutmeg.  I added half a cup of toasted pecans and chopped dried apricots.  I brushed them with some cream and sprinkled turbinado sugar on top before they baked.

I tasted one of the scones and thought they still just needed a little more touch of something sweet.  A little white chocolate drizzle was the perfect thing.

I liked these enough that I had the boys take a plateful of them to the neighbors.  Great pick for this week.  You just can’t go wrong with scones and these were really easy to make.  A link to all the other scones at TWD today.

Ah, there's your famous chocolate touch. Those scones look so good. If I were there, you know I'd be more than willing to eat them with you.

I agree with Lisa, "your famous chocolate touch." You just can't go wrong with that! These scones really do look wonderful with all of those goodies added.

I love baking with apricots, but I don't do so very often. These look so good with the drizzle and pecans! I added dried apple and that was good, too.
