When it comes to scones, I’m of the camp that believes they should be slightly dry. A bite of a crumby scone should inspire a sip of coffee or tea.
I loathe scones that are really just mislabeled muffin tops.
But this scone I had from Chris’ Marketplace at the Dupont Farmers Market, is unlike any other scone I’ve ever had. It’s neither dry, nor overly moist. It’s dense without being a brick. It’s light and fluffy in texture without falling apart at the first pull. In a word, it’s perfect.
