Cherry Scones

One of my absolute favourite things about baking is that you can google almost any combination of ingredients and a recipe will come up. I had leftover buttermilk and a few cups of fresh cherries in my fridge a few nights ago, both begging to be used. After a quick search of "cherry buttermilk scones" up came the recipe I had envisioned all along and I made it come to life.

I really enjoy cherries, but I'm not a fan of the pits solely because it makes them messy to eat. My mom used to buy them when we'd go out in the boat for the day and it was the perfect atmosphere to eat them in - pop it in your mouth, chew around the pit then have a contest to see who can spit in the farthest! Unfortunately that kind of stuff doesn't happen in my cubicle, so I'm forced to spit the pit into the garbage. Not quite as fun and a lot more messy.

maybe someday soon I'll figure out the whole "take nice pictures of your stuff like all the other food bloggers" thing

Once I got to the part where you put them in the oven I realized that the recipe said you need to roll them out and cut them with a cookie cutter - the heart one was the first I could find so here they are. Heart shaped cherry buttermilk scones, adapted from this recipe. 

June is an excellent month for fruit - cherries and strawberries are ripe and red and they have been staples in our fridge for the past few weeks. Nothing beats opening up the fridge and seeing the top shelf chock full of fresh fruit from the market!  

We're less than 24 hours away from the start of the Canada Day long weekend! Both Andrew and I are lucky enough that our employers have closed our offices on Monday to give everyone four days off to enjoy the beautiful summer weather we have coming our way.

We're heading to Gatineau Park on Saturday to enjoy the outdoors, have a picnic and maybe even go for a swim!

We'll see what the rest of the weekend cooks up around this place.  Stay tuned - and happy making!
