I wake up thinking about them, wondering where can I go to get 'em, puzzled why it is so hard to get a decent one. Everyday it is a challenge.
It is not easy to be addicted to scones in Florida.
First, only a few places serve them...Starbucks being the most popular source, except they have recently taken to putting white stripes of icing on them. Ick! Scones are only suppose to be slighty sweet, the icing threw off the dynamic of the scone. Wholefoods had a pretty decent pumpkin scone during the fall. Second, most places don't know what constitutes a good scone. Joanna's Marketplace in Pinecrest had the worst scone I ever had (year and a half ago). Scones are suppose to be crumbly and dry, like almost-hardened cement, not cake-like. Joanna's tasted like bad coffee cake. Knowing me, I probably complained to deaf ears that had no idea the critical importance good scones were to me.
So I continue my quest for the perfect scone, preferably without fruit in them (I am a purist) to satisfy my addiction. I even went to the extreme of checking out a recipe. Now if I can only find someone to follow through. I need to get sconed!
