Baked goods made from yeast-leavened laminated dough. Laminated dough is a culinary preparation consisting of many thin layers of dough separated by butter, produced by repeated folding and rolling, and resulting in light and flaky, melt in your mouth pastries.
Pastries made with a buttery, sweetened dough, filled with a variety of smears, cream cheese or fresh seasonal fruit.
Puff pastry dough is know for thin, delicate and crispy layers created while it bakes.
I asked the maid in dulcet tone to order me a buttered scone; The silly girl has been and gone and ordered me a buttered scone. It doesn't matter how you pronounce 'scone' because one bite and the only thing you'll be saying is 'mmmmmm.' Lightly sweetened and biscuit-like with a variety of dried fruit fillings.
muffins & coffeecakes
American style muffins make use of quickbread batter, baked in individual sized molds. Quickbreads, chemically leavened (baking soda/baking powder) as opposed to yeast leavened, were not developed until the end of the 18th century. Our sweet breakfast coffeecakes can be enjoyed on their own or with your fresh cup of joe each morning.
