Tuesdays with Dorie: Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones

May 24, 2011

This week’s recipe for the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers is Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones, selected by Patricia of Life With a Whisk. You might want to just go ahead and check out Patricia’s post, because I didn’t do so well with this recipe.

I made half the recipe and the dough was really wet. I could easily form it into a circle, but it was difficult to cut it into wedges. After baking for a little bit, it grew back into a circle and got pretty brown pretty fast. I made these early in the morning and wasn’t exactly inspired to bake, so I think that caused me to goof somewhere along the way.

They tasted OK, though they were pretty cakey rather than flaky.

I bet you can do better than I did with this recipe. Open your copy of Baking: From My Home to Yours to page 30, or click over to Life With a Whisk to get the recipe.


  1. aw, sorry they didn’t come out the way you’d hoped!

  2. Isn’t that weird? I hate when that happens. Somebody explain it to me. I’m sure you followed the same recipe. sigh
    My dough was definitely sticky, almost to much to touch, but we got her done.

  3. I’m not sure that this was your fault. I made these tonight-also at a time when I wasn’t really feeling like baking. Mine were flat and rather blah. I’m not sure what I did wrong…..sorry yours wasn’t a hit, either.

  4. Somedays just aren’t for cooking. They were quite tasty. Better luck tomorrow!

  5. As long as they tasted OK, that’s the main thing.

  6. Sorry these didn’t turn out better. I have the hardest time with scones.

  7. Mine were very crumbly, but very tasty. I keep trying to make them un-crumbly!!

    Next time, Jill, next time.
