Joining “Why Is A Raven Like A Writing Desk?” in the annals of head-scratching riddles, I present you with this week’s installment:
“When Is A Scone Not A Scone?”
If you split your scones in half, and serve them with the aforementioned whipped cream and berries, well, your scone is now officially a shortcake. Ta-daaaa!
My biggest “mistake” in the scone-to-shortcake transformation was cutting the scones too large–I knew I wanted big shortcakes, but once they were baked, they were close to 5″ round, which I think we can all admit is pretty hefty. But other than that, these cream scones worked out perfectly as whipped cream and berry delivery devices.
Since I’ve solved the scone riddle, I’ll leave it to the rest of you to figure out the raven-writing desk one. G’luck!
