say it ain't s(c)o(ne)

goodbye Gourmet

Have some tea and one of these even though they won't really make it better.

Marzipan and Poppyseed Scones

* 1/2 cup milk
* 1 large egg
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 teaspoon sugar
* 1 package Odense marzipan (3/4 chopped, 1/4 sliced)
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
* 1/4 cup poppyseeds

Preheat oven to 400. Mix the flour, salt, sugar, powder and soda in a big bowl. Cut the butter and chopped marzipan into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or your fingers. Stir the wet ingredients and poppyseeds in another bowl. Add the wet to the dry and mix with a scroon (see below) until combined. Knead the dough briefly. Roll it out on a floured surface to about 1" thickness and cut 12 scones. Arrange the scones on a lined baking sheet and top each one with a slice of marzipan before baking for about 20 minutes.

wow- the double marzipan whammy.

GOT to try 'em. Will let you know how they are received!
But it seems that poppyseeds and marzipan SHOULD make everything better, no? I guess nothing will fill the void left by the passing of Gourmet. It ain't right, I tell ya.
