When I was 7 years old, and was absolutely obsessed with my Easy Bake oven. I loved to stir up the little mixes, scoop them into the pan, and push them into the oven.
The seconds would tick by so slowly as I waited for my confection to bake. When the timer finally beeped, I would push the pan out of the oven (usually burning my fingers in the process) to behold my creation.
The first batch of scones I ever made was with my Easy Bake oven. I actually made four scones, and of course they had to be baked individually. It took forever, but I persevered. It felt like four hours, but it was probably just one or two before the scones were done. I served them with tea to my family with pride in my accomplishment.
My idea of scones is a biscuit-y, cookie-ish, muffin-y type of deliciousness studded with fruit or nuts. I wanted to recreate this delicious pastry in a way that even the most allergic people could enjoy.
The result? A soft AIP scones recipe studded with fresh raspberries and shredded coconut. Perfect with a cup of tea.
