My favorite way to eat them is fresh and naked. The raspberries, not me. I'm usually wearing some sort of pant when I eat them. Four bucks for a tiny thing of raspberries is a bit much, so whenever I see them on sale at 10 for $10 - get out of my way I'm going to buy all the raspberries! One of our local grocery stores had 10 packs for $10 last week and I thought I'd use some of my fruity loot to bake some scones. They are crispy on the outside and they have a tender crumb. They're sweet enough, but not very sweet. I liked the scones and ate too many, but I still think my favorite way to eat raspberries will always be fresh and naked. Mr. Wing-It, who is not a raspberry fan, actually liked these because the berries are soft and gooey and they lose their outer fuzziness in the oven.
This one is adapted from three different recipes: Alton Brown's Scones, these Simple Scones from AllRecipes, and these Raspberry Scones from CHOW.
Half-Batch Vegan Raspberry-Coconut Scones
Serves: 6 Mini Scones
What To Do:
If you want a lot of scone with a little bit of raspberry use half a cup of raspberries sliced in half.
If you want a little bit of scone with a lot of raspberry use 1/2 cup of whole raspberries.
If you subscribe to my Facebook page you may have already seen the following photo. It's the first batch of baby dumplings of the season! It's amazing how something so cute can be the result of such a horrible mating ritual. Have you ever witnessed ducks mating? If you haven't, you're lucky. Several males often gang up on one single female (or sometimes even on an injured male!) and it is not fun to witness that. It's traumatizing!
This seems like a good time to give you a relevant tip: never Google "duck penis". Just don't do it, man. Keep enjoying that blissful ignorance that I lost when curiosity got the best of me and made me look it up. Disturbing! My eyes! My eyes! What has been seen cannot be unseen! Purge my memory of this horrid sight! What? You weren't thinking about googling "duck penis"? You are now! Mwahahaha! But don't.
But anyway, baby dumplings!
