Fiona’s Cinnamon Scones for Outlander S3E4 “Of Lost Things”

Fiona’s Cinnamon Scones for Outlander S3E4 “Of Lost Things”

Outlander on Starz, Voyager

Well, with Frank’s death last week we are leaving Boston behind and headed back to the Highlands, and the Manse. As Claire, Roger, and Brianna search the Reverend’s voluminous study for proof that Jamie lives, Mrs. Graham’s granddaughter will be in the kitchen, whipping up favourites like Fiona’s Cinnamon Scones.

“A pound of best butter—that’s what you told me to ask for, and I did, but I kept wondering whether there was such a thing as second-best butter, or worst butter—” Brianna was handing over wrapped packages to Fiona, laughing and talking at once.

“Well, and if ye got it from that auld rascal Wicklow, worst is what it’s likely to be, no matter what he says,” Fiona interrupted. “Oh, and ye’ve got the cinnamon, that’s grand! I’ll make cinnamon scones, then; d’ye want to come and watch me do it?”

“Yes, but first I want supper. I’m starved!” Brianna stood on tiptoe, sniffing hopefully in the direction of the kitchen. “What are we having—haggis?”

“Haggis! Gracious, ye silly Sassenach—ye dinna have haggis in the spring! Ye have it in the autumn when the sheep are killed.” “

Am I a Sassenach?” Brianna seemed delighted at the name.

“Of course ye are, gowk. But I like ye fine, anyway.”

    good morning, Theresa! I am on entree duty today so am attempting Shepard’s Pie. Your picture of these scones makes my mouth water! I’ll make them for my hubby & I during the week, probably a double batch with some in the freezer. It’s a tough call for me to decide on these scones or LJ’s plum cake when it’s my turn for dessert…. :). So glad I got my copy of the cookbook this week!! Love it!

    One of my favorite “comfort food” recipes. My children love these too and are always very impressed when mine turn out looking “just like your cookbook mom”. Thanks for helping make me look good.
