Stony Scone-y

Len made some double chocolate scones today...  and sent me a picture too!  It is one of those "Is this a dessert?  Is this a breakfast?"  Oh!  Who the hell cares!  They are good anytime!

1 cup GF baking mix
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
3 tablespoons margarine
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 vanilla soymilk

Preheat oven to 400 and line a cookie sheet with parchment.  Whisk together the dry ingredients (except chocolate chips).  With pastry cutter or a fork, cut in the margarine until mixture is crumbly.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Slowly add the soymilk until dry ingredients are completely moistened.  Spoon onto lined cookie sheet and bake for approximately 15 minutes.

These are super moist and even taste good the next day, which is not always the case with gluten free baked goods.  

We mostly think "eat it all now 'cuz it won't be good tomorrow" but it is nice to have a treat the next day too.  When you want something specific to eat and you can't just go out and buy it,  it can feel like you live in your kitchen.  Since my kitchen is kinda cute, I don't mind...  usually!  

The worst is when you think a recipe is going to be so so good and your stomach is growling and the kitchen smells wonderful and whatever it is even LOOKS perfect, and it really sucks.  Mostly, things taste just fine but the texture is off.  A beautiful looking and smelling cake turns to ((POOF)), crumbly air when you try to cut into it. Or those damn waffles are hollow and stick to the iron (which is still in the basement and NOT making an appearance ever again).  Or the brownies are just greasy globs of goop.  Brownies are another thing I have given up on.
