Chocolate Pots de Creme and Toasted Almond Scones -- Tuesdays with Dorie

Running a little behind on Tuesdays with Dorie posts, so here is a catch up post. Our TWD pick is Chocolate Pots de Creme, chosen for us to try by Christine at
Black Cat Cooking, thanks Christine! I was a little nervous about these, thinking they might be too eggy for my liking, but they were not eggy at all, just very chocolaty and with a great pudding consistency. It was nice to get to use my new ramekin set, they are labeled 5 ounce, but I filled them with four ounces of water just to test out their volume and 4 ounces fits in there perfectly, don't think 5 ounces would work without overflow. Thank goodness they were just the right size for a half batch of Chocolate Pots de Creme.

Next up is last week's TWD pick, Toasted Almond Scones, picked for us to try by Mike at Living Out West , thanks Mike! I love scones and almonds and couldn't wait to give these a try. Instead of making two rounds of dough, I made one big round for some jumbo scones.

I topped them with some turbinado sugar and they baked up beautifully. They were absolutely perfect with a cup of mint green tea and I enjoyed the flecks of almond, providing a nice little crunch. Loved them!

Whew, it is nice to catch up! I was late making the scones since we had the ice storm power outage last week. I made both TWD treats yesterday, so fun to be back playing in the kitchen :)

For a recipe with so many egg yolks, these didn't taste eggy at all, did they? I loved these too - and they look great in your new ramekins. Glad you enjoyed the scones too - they were a hit at our house.
