Chocolate Chip Scones

Nicole’s Chocolate Chip Scones (with Cranberries!)

Ingredients…

  • 2 cups of flour
  • ¼ cup of white sugar
  • 1 ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter, cold, cut into pieces
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ⅔ – ¾ cup of milk

Instructions…

01Preheat the oven to 400 F.

02First off, in a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

03Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it is a coarse crumb. Then mix in the chocolate chips and cranberries.

04Combine the vanilla and milk in a small measuring cup and stir into the flour mixture so it just comes together.

05Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough and gently and form it into a circle about seven inches around.

06Cut the circle in half and then cut each half in 4 pie shaped wedges.

07Finally, place the scones on a baking sheet, brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. I like to sprinkle a little extra sugar on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

08A tooth pick inserted in the middle that comes out clean will tell you that your scones are ready.

Enjoy!

Jerk Shrimp

Jerk Shrimp

Ingredients…

  • 1 pound large shrimp (16/20 or 21/25)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground pimento (allspice)
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 hot pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ¼ cup cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar (cider or white)

Instructions…

01Place all the ingredients (except the shrimp, of course) in a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until everything is well combined. Store the leftover marinade in the refrigerator in a tightly closed jar for about 1 month.

02In a large bowl season the shrimp with a generous amount of jerk seasoning. Let sit for 20 minutes.

03Preheat a a saute pan with a little bit of olive oil. Add shrimp and cook about 5 minutes a side. If you want to grill, thread the shrimp on a BBQ skewer and alternate with pineapple and red onion.

04Serve the shrimp as an appetizer with lime wedges, and crusty bread… or serve it with rice and vegetables (or a crispy salad) for a main.
