The first rule of scone making is to make them the same day you want to eat them. Seriously. They go to a weird texture land if you save them for the next day. Want a good scone? Get out of bed a few minutes early or even mix the dry ingredients the night before if you need to save a few seconds. There are vegan recipes that are oil based, margarine based, shortening based or a mixture. Each delivers a different crumb. This recipe is from Vegan Lunchbox and one of my faves made with margarine. Here is a link, look at page 209.
The second rule of scone making is to not overmix your mix-ins. Or else you get weird coloured scones. Yeah, I’m guilty. I was tired. I’m just too darn lazy in the mornings to remember this one. The taste is generally the same so I’m obviously not a stickler for it. Â They are still tasty!
Make them and enjoy them!
