Today's Baked Sunday Morning recipe is for homemade Hazelnut Spread.
I have decided not to make this week's recipe What? What?? But the hazelnuts? The skinned hazelnuts!! Well, as I have a big jar of nutella in the cupboard I figured I'd skip this week's recipe.
Instead, I thought it would be a great opportunity to make those Nutella Scones (that I missed making as I joined this group late). Yay, Nutella Scones!!! Hence the toasting and skinning of hazelnuts.
Nutella Scones you say? Yep, these ain't your grandma's scones. After mixing the dry and wet ingredients together, the dough is flattened into a rectangle and then a quarter cup of the nutella is poured onto the dough. I heated the nutella so that it was pourable.
Then the recipe says to roll the dough into a cylinder....not an easy feat with scone dough. But I struggled through and then turned that cylinder into a disk of dough. (Trust me, you do not want to see that process....it was messy.)
The disk of dough is put on the baking sheet. Now it just needs to be made into 6-8 scones. Please note, the recipe did not indicate scones were to be of equal size. I like to call it freestyle cutting. (Don't judge!)
Or made them into equal size scones.
They needed more nutella!!!! This time, poured over the top.....yep over the top is a good way to describe these scones.
And after consuming one, I realize I really, really should have made these into smaller scones. These are crazy rich and not a scone you could eat regularly. Hubbie said they are more like a dessert....and I can't disagree. They were good. And if you love hazelnuts, you will love these scones. And if you love nutella....well what are you waiting for, make these scones!!! Head over to Baked Sunday Mornings to search for the recipe and to see if I was the only one who went Rogue this week.
