The last time we visited our friends in North Carolina, Tonya and I visited Foster’s Market for lunch. Our lunch was fantastic, and the market offered so many delicious looking items that I wanted to take them all home and give them a try. While Tonya was here visiting family last week, she brought me a basket packed full of goodies from the market (as well as a few from another of my North Carolina favorites, A Southern Season) plus a copy of The Foster’s Market Cookbook.
Considering how good everything looked in the market, figuring out what to make first was tough. I decided to make a little weekend breakfast treat for me and Quinn. Sara Foster’s scones recipe suggests many variations, such as mixed berry, pear-almond, and pecan-praline. They all sounded delicious. I let Quinn pick, and he chose the cinnamon-apple variety.
These scones are a great way to start a lazy, weekend morning. They are warm, dense, and very delicious. And, of course, apples and cinnamon are always a winning combination for me. Next time, though, I’m thinking that I’ll be forced to make the pecan-praline variety.
For those of you not in the Durham area, Foster’s Market offers an online market, as well. I highly recommend the Seven Pepper Jelly.
