So a couple of years ago, I attempted to make scones for the first time to see if they passed his obviously discriminating taste (this from a man who, in my mother's absence, will eat a bag of microwave popcorn for dinner). I figured if I made them chocolate with chocolate chips that they would surely be a hit and I was right. I went to my favorite source for any bread creation, King Arthur Flour. (That link will take you directly to a classic scone recipe with a bunch of different variations including the chocolate chocolate chip madness)
Last Christmas, I decided to try making King Arthur's Triple Cinnamon Scones. According to a bunch of research I've read cinnamon is a great metabolism booster, so I'm fairly certain with the amount of cinnamon that these scones contain you're actually loosing weight while you eat them.*
**Compliments of the fine people at King Arthur Flour**
*This is, of course, a false statement. There's a stick of butter in this recipe. I'm pretty sure you could eat the entire jar of cinnamon and it won't counteract the fat content in that.
Happy Birthday to the most important man, my hero, and my first love...my dad!
