Gingerbread Scones w/Maple Icing

Gingerbread scones are a difficult thing to get right. To be honest, I’m still not sure I’ve gotten them down.  I always find that the molasses in the recipe drags the scones down–literally. The resulting scones don’t have the rise or the fluff that scones should have, and so they’re left rather dense and flatbread…

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones

Gluten-free scones are a trick. They absolutely don’t taste like the real thing–ever. No recipe I’ve tried has been as flakey and buttery as the real thing. BUT that doesn’t mean I stop trying to find a “perfect” gluten-free scone. Half the time, that means I indulge in the real thing, while the other half,…

Pomegranate Orange Scones

So…I have a confession to make.  I cheated on this recipe.  In a couple of ways, actually. Allow me to explain.  1. I didn’t come up with this flavor combination on my own.  2. I used an existing recipe and adapted it to a scone recipe. 3. I used my new Vitamix. (While perhaps not…

Maple Pecan Scones

Maple and pecans. Sweet and nutty.  It’s kinda like a cinnamon roll, but then, not really. Not at all, actually. But it’s a popular flavor, nonetheless.  As someone who doesn’t really care for nuts, especially of the softer variety, I don’t tend to get excited about baked goods with nuts in them. (The one exception…

Butterscotch Pumpkin Eggnog Scones

Yep, it’s definitely the holiday season. Evidence of the fact that I’m already gearing up to get myself in the kitchen and bake like mad. Sadly, I’ve been avoiding dairy for a couple of months now, but that just means I’m living vicariously through those I force my scones upon. It’s both nice and annoying that Little Man…

Gluten-Free Coconut Chocolate Chip Scones

Welcome to 2016! 🎉💥☕️ I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve scone blogged. In my defense, it’s been a long two years, and I haven’t been making a lot of scones. But this past month, I am finally getting back into the scone baking–and experimenting with gluten free scones! Some of you will be groaning,…

Strawberry-Maple Scones

Gasp! Strawberry season came early this year, and here I am allowing this scones recipe to sit unpublished in my blog archives! What have I been doing with my time? Oh, that’s right, parenting. I guess there are some things worth sacrificing scones for… But these scones were pretty good. Slices strawberries, sweet maple, hearty…

Sriracha Cheddar Cheese Scones

I needed a quick scone to bake for dinner one night, and boy are these it. I was busy making last week’s post when I realized I needed something else to go with our honey bourbon chicken and rice. Since I already had scone making stuff out, I figured making scones for dinner wouldn’t be…

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Scones

My poor scone blog…falling into oblivion like this with half written posts languishing in cyberspace as I struggle to bake scones and care for my now three and a half month old… Scones, you are never far from my mind. My mind just gets overwhelmed by the day to day responsibilities I have now. So…
