I've been enjoying baking along with the Tuesdays With Dorie group so much that I decided to join another baking group that I just learned of, club: BAKED. They're baking their way through Baked Explorations by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. I have so many cookbooks that I never use, I'm super excited to know that I'll get a lot of use out of at least 2 of them now!
This is my first post for the group (they've already covered 16 of the 68 recipes in the book so I'm a little late) and I'm so glad I joined when I did because I would've been really disappointed to have missed out on baking these, they're AMAZING. They're a bit dry, but there's a ribbon of Nutella baked into the center that completely saves them. I skipped the hazelnuts because a) that was the only ingredient I didn't already have on hand, b) I was too lazy to go to the store, and c) they're expensive and I'm poor! The Nutella topping is what it's really all about anyway - it's excessive, overindulgent, and completely mandatory.
The recipe for these scones can be found here on the host of the week's blog.
