Bakesale Betty at Temescal Farmer's Market

I just came back from the farmer's market at Temescal this morning, where I got a lemon raisin scone from Bakesale Betty besides other things. I finally got to see the famous "Betty" (with her blue wig) today. She was pretty friendly and knew the names of a lot of her customers. And she was WAYYY younger than I expected her to be.

Anyway, I was a bit disappointed with my scone ... it was very soft and crumbly, and there were a lot more raisins than I wanted (though I shouldn't complain; besides, the raisins were plump and moist.) Oh well, everything's good with some Blue Bottle coffee. Not bad for a Sunday brunch.

I guess I just like scones that a bit firmer (more bread-like than cake-like.) The pear ginger scones I had last time were wonderful, and the ginger cookies were fantastic too! I still wanna go back to try their other cookies (the oatmeal raisin ones seemed good), lemon bars, sticky date pudding ... any other recommendations?
