TWD: When Is A Scone Not A Scone?

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?”

How about…when you give the scone some friends? Like whipped cream, and macerated berries, and, yes, let’s throw in some pretty flowered plates. Because a good scone can never have too many friends.

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!

    You know, I've always felt that a scone by any other name is still a shortcake! It's like putting a scone in a party dress, and what could be better than that? Yours look heavenyly!

    Love using them as shortcakes. They aren't sweet so they would be perfect as a foundation for all the goodies you added. Since still have some in the freezer – have to try YOUR way!!
