Cinnamon Chip-Eggnog Scones

It’s almost Christmas. It’s that time of year to enjoy friends, family, and, arguably the most important aspect, food. 😉 The best thing about holiday baking is all the spices that you’re expected to use. Aromatic cinnamon and spicy nutmeg…my mouth waters just thinking of it. What could be better Christmas morning than a freshly baked…

Vanilla Bean Scones

Wow, sorry about that unexpected hiatus from the blog. November got away with me, what with a family road trip and other stuff that popped up. A lot of folks get busy during this time; I am no exception. Baking has had to take a back seat. However, I did make up a plain scone…

Cranberry Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Scones

I think I’m getting in the mood for Thanksgiving already, perhaps because the Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving earlier this month, and it’s one of my favorite holidays. The lack of commercialism, the focus on family and great food, the chance to hang out together, the excuse to overeat (although now that I’m pregnant, I find excuses…

Savory Prosciutto, Cheddar, Parmesan, Thyme Scones

Apparently savory scones are more popular than I once thought. After my bacon cheddar chive scones, I’ve been getting more requests for savory scones from Hubby’s workplace. Since I rarely foray into savory scones, I have no issue with this challenge. Savory scones are much like American biscuits, and can accompany a host of meals….

Caramel Apple Scones

Although a bit messy, these have a great, wintery flavorof caramel and apple. Since it’s fall, the trees are alight with colors, and the weather has taken a definite turn towards the bottom of the thermometer, I find myself searching for wintery recipes. As a result, and since it’s now October, I decided to try a…

Fresh Apple Cinnamon Chip Scones

It’s fall in the Pacific Northwest now. Which means a season of baked fruit pies and spices and pumpkin spice scones and spices and more spices. Two of my favorite spices are cinnamon and nutmeg, and what goes better with cinnamon and nutmeg than apple? Ingredients: 4 cups flour 2 tbsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 2 tsp…

Savory Bacon-Cheddar Cheese-Chive Scones

Is there anything prettier than a pile of freshly baked scones? Although I love scones of all types, I usually bake sweet scones, and I think most Americans picture sweet scones when you talk of scones at all. However, to my surprise, Hubby’s workplace specifically requested a bacon-filled breakfast scone. After my initial surprise, I…

Fresh Peach Scones

Fruit scones are always light and airy, and when just out of the oven, I think they’re best. Most scones are traditional flavors with dried fruits like cranberries, currants, or raisins, but fresh fruits are also a possibility with scones. They are a minor bit more work, but always worth it in the end.Ingredients:3 cups…

Chocolate Truffle Scones

I love dark chocolate. Apparently people at my husband’s workplace do, too. At least, that seems to be the only thing explaining the two separate requests I got for Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Scones. So, I started thinking about why I avoid them, and came up with the fact that they always seem to be far…

Sweet Cranberry Cornbread Scones

I started getting creative with this recipe, I fear. Cornbread scones with soy milk, crème fraîche and dried cranberries. Hmm. It was a toss up as to how this was going to emerge. However, I survived, and actually enjoyed them, a big surprise to me, since I’m not a big fan of cornbread.Ingredients: 1/4 cup…
