Simon Pearce’s Rory’s Scones

I made Simon Pearce’s Vermont Cheddar Soup the other day and I couldn’t help but make the Simon Pearce’s Rory’s Scones to go with it! The soup, the scones, and a little real butter – there couldn’t be anything better on a cold, dreary, sleety March day! It’s enough to warm you from the inside out.

Simon Pearce Vermont Cheddar Soup

I’ve become a pretty big fan of Simon Pearce’s Restaurant and an even bigger fan of the Simon Pearce Vermont Cheddar Soup. And the weird thing is, I’ve never been to the Mill at Simon Pearce, the restaurant in Quechee, Vermont. And never had their Simon Pearce Vermont Cheddar Soup there, either. But no matter, I can have it right here in Minnesota (you betcha) where it seems just as at home on a snowy March night.

We are having “Arctic Chill.” It got ccccold last night and right now it’s minus 11. And I have no right to complain because I live in Minnesota, but we’ve been so spoiled this year it’s a shock. We Minnesotans know that a real Arctic Chill can be 34 to 35 below, so there’s that. Maybe we’re actually lucky. But today I feel particularly lucky because I don’t have to go anywhere and I have a piece of Simon Pearce Quechee Quiche I’m going to have for breakfast!

Simon Pearce Connemara Soup Corned Beef

Connemara Soup with Bacon or Corned Beef

Connemara Soup from Simon Pearce Restaurant - made with corned beef but would be just as good with bacon or smoked sausage!

This is an adaptation of Connemara Soup from the Simon Pearce Restaurant in Vermont. A rich tomato soup flavored with bacon (or as I did today, Corned Beef) and brimming with tomato, potatoes and healthy cabbage. If you’ve made a Corned Beef Dinner, a little left over Corned Beef and the vegetables can be diced up to make this tasty soup. Best of all, you can use some of that broth* from the Corned Beef Dinner, defatted, of course.
