it's a sunny summery sunday in the woodsly goodness,
and the livin' is easy, tho the styles be hard.
the Folk Life & Liberty Fortress thrives on summery flavor.
the whole house resonates with positive vibes and good energy
whenever the weather is nice...
the skies are blue, the light is bright, the birds and the bees
are buzzin' and singin' and flyin' all over,
and all of it is easy.
easy just like today.
it's sunday morning.
umm, they wrote a song about it, bro.
it's a lovely day.
i think i might just be feeling the aftereffects
of a totally expert day of edible excellence.
all my body is alive with awesomeness at the moment.
i put the nutrients to my cells and sh!t,
and my corporeal form is energized with all the raging eagle berserker power!!
i started my morning with tremendous and terrific triangle treats...
because scones are effing dope as heck.
and scones are what you need.
and scones are also delicious.
it's strawberry festival season,
and also it's the scone zone,
and that means we gotta combine both to make something even better than either.
hence, the triumphant triangles you're about to witness:
COCONUT STRAWBERRY CHOCOLATE CHIP SCONES!!!!
they're little, so there's a lot of them.
they're delicious, so you'll eat a lot of them.
and they've got ALL the hottness is each and every bite.
neighbors, fresh strawberries take these to eleven,
and from there, it's all exxxtras and upgrades everywhere.
here's how to do it:
THE SCONE ZONE!!
preheat your oven 400℉
in a medium bowl,
3 cups flour;
1/4 cup tapioca;
1/2 tsp salt;
3/4 cup medium flake coconut;
2 tsp baking powder;
1 tsp baking soda;
1/4 cup sugar;
1 stick vegan buttterish;
3 T vegan creamchee';
2 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries;
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips;
1/2 cup non-dairy milk.
stir it until it's lumpy,
then fold and turn and fold and turn and turn and fold,
over and over,
until you've made layer on layer of stacks on stacks...
i always press 'em flat...like, about an inch thick.
and here's the thing:
i formed up a rectangle, cut it in half lengthwise,
and then chopped triangles to the tune of 22 individual delights.
raw sugar sprankles were added.
rules is rules, after all,
and then i baked 'em up to the puffy pop-ups you see above.
that's twenty minutes of baking time,
after five minutes of freezin', so the butter didn't get too soft up in that hot ovenpiece.
i LOVE crispy crusted fluffy soft scone.
after a walk with crabtree,
i returned home, fired up a pot of dark chocolate,
and melted myself some vanilla-kissed ganache for drizzlin' all over all of it.
you can never have enough drizz, bro.
and i mean,
you see how sexxxy they look.
they're a perfect summertime treat.
i think you need 'em.
shoutouts to today, tho.
a full day of tattzaps,
a full night of drawing,
and somewhere in between,
there's gotta be MORE treats.
it's all really happening,
and it's all too much.
luckily too much is the right amount.
that's the best part;
never quiet, never soft.....
