Sconies Sure to Please

For those of you who know me well, you know I have a bit of a scone fetish. There are even several recipes on this site for scones. So when a box of sconies (small size scones) from Seven Sisters Scones arrived, I showed remarkable restraint in not devouring them en route from the mailbox!

I was delighted to open the box and find not only 10 individually wrapped sconies in a variety of flavors, but also a bag of mushroom Swiss croutons and cappuccino “bisconnies.” As though I needed an excuse to make a cup of coffee and take a break, the bisconnies (a clever combo of scone and biscotti) were definitely it! A little sturdier than a scone but not the tooth cracking hardness of many biscotti, these treats are positively praise worthy.

And the scones… believe it or not they made it to breakfast the next morning. It was terribly difficult to decide which to try first: apple caramel? Raspberry white chocolate? Lemon poppyseed? How about the fig and goat cheese? In the end, I went for the traditional blueberry to give me a more accurate acid test of these little gems. Yowza! They are fantastic; mildly sweet with a lovely proportion of blueberries, a little moist, but with a nice crumb and a firm almost crunchy outer-crust.

Clearly owner Hala Yassine, with inspiration from her siblings, has mastered the art of sconing. And her sconies may be the next cronut. These half-size scones are actually better than their full-sized predecessors as the ratio of moist interior to caramelized exterior is better balanced with the added bonus of being smaller and less filling. Needless to say, I’m hooked!

While Seven Sisters Scones has a brick and mortar store in the John’s Creek area of Atlanta, their items are also available by online mail order (they even have a Scone of the Month Club!) They also have a catering menu with delivery service (within a reasonable distance, of course). So what are you waiting for? Visit them in person or online and experience their unique pastries baked in house daily from fresh, high-quality ingredients in decadent flavors.
