triple_almond_sconesIf you have a scone pan you’d like to use more often, try this week’s recipe. It’s simple, making use of kitchen staples and a few almond products you can easily pick up at the store. You don’t even really need the almond flour; you can grind up some more almonds in your food processor. Yet this makes a rich, tasty treat that’s great for serving to holiday visitors (who may be a little tired of Christmas cookies, gingerbread, etc.). From the “B” Street House Bed & Breakfast in Virginia City, Nevada, where you can enjoy “the charm of the Victorian era in the Silver State”.
