Overview

Nothing is more inviting than freshbaked biscuits and scones. And they're wonderfully easy to make. Elizabeth Alston, author of Muffins, presents 62 delectable recipes, from simple baking powder biscuits and Scottish scones for breakfast to cinnamon biscuits and chocolate-chip scones for afternoon tea. You'll also find tempting lunch and supper dishes, such as lamb potpie with a flaky biscuit topping and potato-onion pie with a crisp biscuit crust; irresistible desserts, including the best blueberry cobbler ever and an assortment of rich shortcakes (fresh strawberry and sinful caramel-banana, among others); elegant appetizers and savory snacks, like starshaped biscuits dolloped with caviar and sour cream and black pepper pretzels; plus creative variations on classic recipes and interesting combinations of wholegrain flours and fruit. Filled with dozens of useful tips and suggestions and solid information on ingredients and preparation, this indispensable book will help any cook turn out never-fail biscuits and scones every time.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A tasty collection of quick and easy recipes for biscuits and scones of all types. Some are old favorites, some are new creations: Hot Cross Scones for breakfast and Gingerbread Scones for tea, Blueberry Cobbler and Caramel Banana Shortcake for dessert, savory Black Pepper Biscuit Pretzels for snacktime. Alston's earlier Muffins was popular; this is likely to be too. JS

I love this book... the scones come out moist, delicious and very flavorful. Easy to follow instructions. My favorites are the Apricot Swirl and Raisin Scones.

I had this book several years ago and made some of the most delicious scones you have ever tasted from the recipes in this book ( and not that difficult either!) After several moves I have misplaced it and I am planning to get another copy for my cookbook collection!
