Blood Orange Double Chocolate Scones w/Blood Orange Butter

Oooh, deliciousness. Yes, you read that title right. Blood Orange Double Chocolate Scones. Yum. Yum. YUM! Again, this past week I asked my Facebook page fans to vote on which scone they wanted to make, and Orange Chocolate scones won by a couple of votes. The tie-breaker suggested the genius idea of using blood oranges, and another…

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

I am so excited to share this scone recipe today. I crafted it a few weeks ago, and it was a huge hit with my tasters. It is definitely a sweet scone, based on the popular Snickerdoodle cookie. I’ve hardly been able to wait to share this one…it’s been a scone experiment highlight, I must…

Cheddar and Parmesan Cheese Scones

I find that savory scones are always great for breakfast or an afternoon snack. It’s a nice change from the sweet scones which can often be overpowering in their sweetness early in the morning. These scones are simple to throw together, and quick to bake, although the original recipe recommends cooling them completely for 1-2…

Coffee-Almond Scones

This past Christmas, I was thrilled to receive a scone and biscuit cookbook that a) I had never heard of, and b) had a lot of good-sounding recipes. This is one that I pulled from it and adapted to better match my tastes. The cookbook itself, called “Biscuits and Scones” by Elizabeth Alston. Now, if…

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…

Gingerbread Scones

I love getting requests for scones from Hubby’s work. It takes the pressure off me to come up with a good idea for a recipe, and lets me know what they want! It’s wonderful. So when someone requested gingerbread scones, I was certainly up for the challenge! I had made them before, but they had turned…

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…
