One of my favorite parts about cooking is the adventure. Any time I see a dish that I’ve never eaten, I know I can look up recipes online and try to make it myself. Many new foods I’ve had for the first time because I made them myself. Once I developed a good understanding of basic cooking skills, I had more successes than flops, which boosted my cooking confidence and encouraged me to keep exploring. One of my favorite cooking adventures was madeleines.
Chocolate Chip Scones
Mmm, scones. They’re a breakfast staple around our house, especially for busy mornings. These chocolate chip scones are perfect with a cup of coffee or eaten on the go. My husband likes to enjoy one as a late-night snack. They stand up well to a few seconds in the microwave if you like them warm, too.
I’ve made these many times, usually late at night when I realize we’re out of breakfast options for the morning. They come together fast, and they don’t take long to bake. There’s just enough time to enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of wine while the house fills with the smell of chocolate. I think I could make these scones in my sleep, and I’ve certainly dreamed about them.
