How do I not know about this woman?! I watched the video and am, indeed, thoroughly charmed. I love her philosophies, and those scones look just my speed. Will be making them soon…and also taking a trip to Santa Monica!
I love Huckleberry, huge fan! I also love Walnut jam scones (a new discovery as of yesterday). I had a walnut scone strawberry preserves at Akasha in Culver City and have been craving another all morning only to pop on here and find this! What a successful friday morning.
just wondering, as I am allergic to nuts (but can eat almonds), whether I could substitute ground walnuts for ground almonds. I generally swap hazelnuts 1 to 1 with almonds, but have never tried with walnuts.
I’m a huge fun of Zoe’s restaurants. My parents live two blocks away from Sweet Rose, which is very dangerous and I just ate at Huckleberry two days ago. I’ve loved everything that i’ve ever ordered! Just one more thing, you gotta check out the Thursday Night Dinners at Huckleberry. They are truly a special dining experience and your mouth with thank you for every single bite from the first course to the last!
Tim, it looks like you have competition for title of superfan! ;)
I saw a (tv) segment on Huckleberry…and, if I lived closer I’d likely frequent the place. These are such original/unusual, beautiful scones – I want to bake them right now (if I wasn’t already making strawberry tiramisu)!
My new favourite breakfast! The scones are as delicious as advertised, and fun to make. I had trouble grinding the walnuts in my big processor so I threw the flour in there and tried again, problem solved. It’s really a great recipe, thanks so much!
I love everything about this post — the recipe, the food quiz, and Zoe Nathan! I hope to have achieved some of her happiness at some point in my life.
Re: her food quiz – I live right by the Mill, and their toast is fantastic! I feel silly saying that, but it is always delightful. They routinely have a special called the “Number 4”, and a few weeks ago it was an apricot sage bread with butter, honey, and sea salt. Perfection.
I made these 3 times over the last 3 days. First for Teacher Appreciation Day, then for the family because they looked so good the first time, then for us again because they were so good! When is the cookbook coming out? I need it!
Hey Tim – I’ve loved your blog and made your recipes for years! I just tried these scones–my first scones ever–and the dough was insanely crumbly and never came together. What did I do wrong? They’re freezing now so I’m not sure how they’ll bake out, but I wanted to know for the future what I can do to fix the dough when it isn’t coming together. Do you just add some additional liquid?
Hey Tan- Yeah, I am guessing some measurement was off. Did you fluff and scoop the flour? Yes, in the future adding some more buttermilk would be fine. The dough is pretty crumbly, so I am guessing you just needed to add a little extra buttermilk. Hopefully they bake up okay!
