SCONES & COFFEE
If you're fortunate enough to live in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul you have access to some of the best coffee I've ever tasted. The coffee shop is Kopplin's and is in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul. Even with my Pasquini ready and waiting for me 24 hours/day, I will make the occasional run to Kopplin's for one of his extraordinary cappuccinos and a treat from his pastry case. The treats offered there are from Rustica Bakery in Minneapolis and although you can't go wrong with anything you choose to sample, the item I always look for is the lemon-poppyseed scone.
I decided to make some of my own lemon-poppyseed scones this morning. These are extremely lemony which I prefer. Feel free to leave out one of the lemon ingredients if you like a more subtle lemon taste.
