Icon scones are so simple to create you think part of the recipe is missing

Last night I watched a Miss Marple BBC movie. As the various murder plots unraveled some where in a small English tea joint scones were served. Several times.

Scones. Man, did those sound good. So, I started roaming through some bread recipe books on the shelf. The most difficult part of the process was figuring out how to spell S-C-O-N-E-S.

Once that mystery was resolved the basic scone recipe appeared on page 369. Creating scones is so simple one wonders if there’s a mistake in the recipe. Maybe a page is missing.


Icon Coffee-dunking Oatmeal Cookies

Icon Coffee-dunking Oatmeal Cookies

These aren’t your grandmother’s oatmeal cookies.

When I bake cookies I usually try to use something that I’m just about out of, so I can get rid of the container. Tonight I noticed that I have what appears to be three cups of oatmeal left in the oatmeal cylinder, so, why not try some oatmeal cookies – I thought.

It’s 15 degrees out; I’m hungry and need something to dunk into milk or coffee. Not one to follow the recipe, I’ve used poetic license, thus inventing Icon Coffee-dunking Oatmeal Cookies.

Here goes.


Iconic Bakery: How about an Icon muffin with coffee?

Here’s an easy muffin that goes with the holidays and coffee, too.

It’s the Icon’s variation of Spice Chocolate Muffins from a cookbook called “Muffins.” We toned down the sugar and chocolate chips from the original recipe and it still creates pretty sweet muffins.

This recipe made 14 large muffins.
