Hidden in the middle of the State of Utah, In a beautifully green canyon was a restaurant called The Black Steer. They had the tastiest steaks in the State! (Say that 3 times fast) The best thing wasn’t on the menu though, it came with our meal as a bread. This was like no bread I had ever tasted! I had to have the recipe. This took some serious chef Schmoozing I have since served these great puffed scones in my home, for family and friends, and my places of employment on a Sunday Brunch, much to the raves of all!
TIP: Always pursue a good recipe. Put it in your purse, dissect it, play with it, perfect it, and VOILA! You will have re created a masterpiece!
