Ahh, the scone.The pastry that’s somewhere between cake and a biscuit and goes great with a cup of tea.
I’ve enjoyed baking them in the past, but never had much success. I do appreciate a good scone, though, so I jumped at the chance to try the scones from Seven Sisters. A Johns Creek based shop, one can stop by for sconies (small scones) in a variety of flavors, scone sandwiches, bisconines (a cross between a scone and biscotti) and croutons made from scones. I didn’t get to try the sandwiches, but I did get to sample everything else and nothing disappointed.
Seven Sisters has regular sized scones, but I got to try their mini scones. Or, sconies. Each sconie comes individually wrapped. There were enticing flavors, like blueberry, raspberry chocolate chip, and fig and goat cheese. Because these are made without preservatives, you have to eat them quickly, as in, a couple of days. So, in an effort to not waste any I took them into work to share with my coworkers. They were all devoured by the end of the day! I loved my pumpkin maple sconie. It wasn’t too dry, and not too sweet.
A box of 12 regular-sized scones is $42. A box of 36 sconies is $54.
The croutons were a nice surprise. I didn’t expect to like them as much as I did! I mean, they’re just dried up pieces of scone, right? Well, yes, but they’re also buttery and with caramelized onions go perfectly on your salad. I would have loved to put them on some tomato soup too. Something to keep in mind for next time!
Biscotti, meet scone. Scone, meet biscotti. Together these two meld for a softer version of the classic Italian cookie. I tried the caramel apple flavor, which was subtle. It made for a nice afternoon treat, alongside a cup of coffee and light reading.
Where can I get a sconie?
You could visit the Seven Sisters shop up in Johns Creek. Or, you could visit them at the Marietta Square Farmers Market or the Green Market at Piedmont Park. Or, you could visit their website and have goodies delivered to you!
They also have several holiday gift bag options. Perfect for Christmas or New Year’s breakfast!
Thank you, Seven Sisters Scones for sharing these treats with me. The treats were free, but the thoughts are my own.
