Jalapeño-Cheddar Scones

Last week, I did something I’ve never done before. I asked my Facebook page followers to vote on this week’s recipe. Out of five recipes, Jalapeño-Cheddar Scones were the clear winner. I was excited to get to make these–I don’t think I’ve thrown jalapeños into a scone before, but they turned out pretty well. Since…

Lemon-Blueberry Ricotta Scones

This is one of those recipes that I was quite apprehensive about trying. But…I got a request for something “wild and crazy,” and ricotta fruit scones sounded a bit adventurous to me without being guaranteed to be a total flop. Lemon and blueberry obviously complement each other well. So the only real adventure in this…

Snickerdoodle Scones

Cheddar and Parmesan Cheese Scones

Ingredients: 4 cups flour 2 tbsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 2 tsp…

Fresh Cranberry-Orange Scones

Orange and cranberry complement each other in many recipes. This one is no different.

Cornbread Scones

Cornbread Scones with Butter After the Royal Scone disappointment, I felt the urge to try something else. So I tried another savory scone recipe: Cornbread Scones! I only wish that I had made some chili to go with. This recipe I got from a scone recipe book that I bought in Culloden Battlefield gift shop last…
