The pickled mango, which was supposed to follow the shoyu mango topic previously posted, is still pickling. In the mean time, just thought I’d virtually share with you a box of these scrumptious Blueberry Cream Cheese Scones we received today from one of our vendors. Mahalo HH+R!
These scones are absolutely fantastic! Especially with a cup ‘o joe. The cream cheese, which you can see sort of incorporated into the dough in that cross cut, adds this richness to an otherwise light and flaky pastry, giving it this completely unique texture and flavor profile that’s decadent AND redeeming, all at the same time. Of course where there’s cream cheese there’s blueberries, which in this case adds just the right amount of contrast. The “tight” sugar glaze drizzled on top is literally “icing on the cake” that would be missed if it were absent, further reinforcing that what makes up the sum of its parts, when added all up, equals greatness.
A box (or several) of these would make a great Omiyage (gift) if you’re looking for an interesting new idea to take back to family and friends on the neighbor islands or abroad.
They’re from from Chef Kelvin Ro’s Daimond Head Market & Grill on the corner of Campbell and Monsarrat, former home of Burgerland.
