Rustic Current and Cherry Scones

My favorite part of the day is early in the morning when the sun is just starting to rise. The house is quiet, the streets are empty, and the phone is silent. The other day, I woke up early. For that small portion of time between darkness and sunlight, it was just me in my kitchen. I brewed a cup of coffee, watched the sun come up, and started to gather the ingredients for these scones.

I have been eyeing this recipe for a few weeks now. A while ago, I started to look for a good scone recipe and I kept coming back to this one. I tried a few other recipes, but I couldn’t get this one out of my head. Finally, I stopped by the grocery store and picked up the only ingredient I didn’t have on hand, buttermilk. I had some currents and dried cherries left over from other recipes, so I decided to use them both.

Savor your Scones

I have a definite weakness for breakfast pastries. I think I enjoy them because they slow me down during the rush of a hectic morning.

Scones, in particular, remind me of lazy Sunday mornings, when you have time to nibble on your pastry, sip your coffee, and enjoy your day.

They remind me that even on a busy weekday, it is important to slow down and take time to savor your breakfast – especially if it consists of theseĀ orange scones with walnuts.
