Maple Oat Nut Scones

I am one of Dorothy's biggest fans. Literally and figuratively-HA! When Dorothy bakes bread(sometime last year she posted her recipe), my husband took great interest.

When Dorothy bakes scones, I get totally motivated to try my luck at it. This is what came from our kitchen this morning, no wonder we are both overweight!



DH moved his sourdough starter all the way from CA in a plug-in cooler, lol...and made this wonderful bread this morning. He made 2 small loaves instead of one gargantuan one.

See the odd little garlic salt and onion salt containers? They belonged to my mother. There was a third celery salt one but it fell from it's perch and broke several years ago. Would love to get my hands on a replacement. Has anyone ever seen these before? Likely circa 50's.

They look scrumptious! I should send you some real maple syrup.

The only place I've seen those little containers was on a BBC program called Cash in the Attic (or maybe it was the US version? -- could have been both actually) I think they are collectibles these days. Try e-bay, someone may have it there.

You're cooking! That must mean that you're settling in nicely. :)

Only 100% real maple syrup consumed in this household. I'm a snob that way!

Howsomever, I had to use "maple flavoring" instead of "maple extract", it wasn't to be found.

In answer to anonymous above, it's sorta in the same vein, but that one just isn't it. The celery stalk had a flat head. Thanks for trying tho!!!

That looks fantastic! I'm trying a low carb diet at the moment, so they look like gold bars to me.

Oh man, those look soooooo good. And they're not even close to being on my diet. :-(

Ooooooh. Are those maple scones I see?

Real sourdough anything is amazing. Like nothing else.

The scones look incredibly yummy. I've never seen the flavored salt containers like those. Good luck locating it's missing triplet, they're really cute.
