Submission: Griffon Scones

From the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic television series 

Hi, everypony! Today's post is a submission recipe from Geeky Chef reader, Christian Esquivel. You My Little Pony fans are an inspiration! Far and away, I see more requests for My Little Pony recipes than recipe requests from any other fandom. Luckily for me, Christian went and did my job for me. His take on Griffon Scones are flavored with cardamom, have almond/chocolate acorns on top, and contain absolutely no oatmeal. That would be crazy. Here's the description, courtesy of Christian:

Griffonstone, a kingdom of the Griffon folk, are born to be greedy, hoarding treasure like dragons do. One day, the kingdom was in peace and harmony with the treasure so righteous, it made the griffons of Griffonstone happy and peace loving as they could be. One day, however, the treasure was stolen by a terrible beast before the treasure fell down with him to the creature's demise. It was years later that Gilda got a secret recipe from her grandpa: Griffon Scones. They were solid as a rock until Pinkie Pie fixed something up to make them taste good; and the only ingredient to fix the Griffon Scones is baking powder. These delicious looking scones can warm your feathers up with a taste of cardamom!

2 cups flour*
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. cardamom
2 oz. finely chopped crystallized ginger
1 tsp. ground ginger
6 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
Almond Paste (for the acorn)
1/4 cup White Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup, plus 1 tbsp. Milk Chocolate Chips

*Substitute for gluten free flour mix if you're allergic to regular wheat flour

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Beat the butter and the sugars until creamy. Beat in one egg at a time until well mixed. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients and the crystallized ginger. Gently fold in half the flour mixture, then mix in the buttermilk and add in the remaining flour mixture. Dough should not be too dry.
2. Pour dough out onto a lightly floured surface and spread until the dough is two inches and a half tall. Then cut out into round forms. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and let it bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.
3. Form the acorns out of almond paste and allow them to dry for one hour. Place in the refrigerator to chill.
4. Meanwhile, melt 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips with a tablespoon of milk chocolate chips and mix together. In a separate container, melt 1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips. When acorns are chilled, paint the body of the acorn with the white chocolate mix and the top of the acorn with melted milk chocolate. Allow to dry on wax paper.
5. After the acorns are dried and the scones are cooled to room temperature, glue on the acorn with a dab of melted chocolate at the top center of the scone. Let it harden and serve!

  1. Not a brony, but this looks yummy!

  2. Awesome! Thanks so much for it! I bet someone's desperately wanting to see you take many requests that are based on Friendship is Magic (i.e. The Phenomnomenons from Friends Forever #12). I'll have to say that it's been long waited since I was drawing and submitting some MLP artwork to Equestria Daily, but none of them made it except two of them did (source 13 on #1704 and source 21 on #1839).

  3. Small error in the post:
    "Gilda got a secret recipe from his grandpa"

    "his" should be "her"
