Scones near Millburn, NJ? Mon, 11/29/04 12:35 PM (permalink)
Hello all. I realize that scones are not exactly a road food, but I'm desperate. I moved to Millburn from Brooklyn a few months ago, and it seems that few people in Millburn even know what a scone is, let alone make them. I miss the big, wonderful scones I used to get at Eagle Provisions on 5th Avenue & 18th Street in Brooklyn. Does anyone know where I might find such a thing nearby? I've looked in several bakeries in Union, the bakery in the plaza by Vaux Hall Road, and The Bagel Chateau, to name a few.

Thanks for any leads you can provide.

-Hugh

    Hugh, scones are not hard to make yourself. I found out not long ago that you can make the batter the night befor and bake then in the morning.

      I actually made some recently and the results, while not bad, were far from what I expected. I used the _New York Times Cookbook_ recipe, and they came out denser and more biscuity than I anticipated: nothing like the fluffy scones I'm used to.

        Hugh, the cafeteria at work offers scones most mornings, and I love their blueberry or cranberry scones. But these scones are dense, sort of the consistency of a "pecan sandy" type cookie. They are definitely not fluffy in any way.

        Must be lots of different recipes for different style scones. Keep searching and good luck.

          This reminds me of the Seattle Gyros thread. To find the best scones, I would suggest traveling approximately 3000 miles west to Seattle. I'm from the NYC area, lived in Brooklyn and have had scones there. They couldn't even begin to compare to the phenomenal pastry gems in the Pacific Northwest.

            one place that you might want to try is the Argyle in Kearney, reviewed on this site (scones are not mentioned, but given its British/Scottish cuisine, it seems likely they would have them

                Hugh,

                You should try the scones in Maplewood, NJ www.savortheflavor.us by chef Paula Ricker. Scones are her specialty item with many varieties and baked fresh by order.

                  Thanks! I'll give that a shot, although I have less reason to venture beyond my own kitchen since I discovered the following fantastic recipe. I plan to make another batch of these soon, substituting raisins and whatnot for the ginger.
