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…

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…

Almond White Chocolate Cherry Scones

Shortly after moving into our new home, my husband requested scones for breakfast one day. We hadn’t really done a lot of grocery shopping, and my love for scones has been put on the back burner since trying to figure out if my son has allergies and with all the unpacking we’ve been doing, it’s been a…

Almond Cranberry Vanilla Chip Scones

These were a bit of a surprise to me. When I first made them, it was sans almond. I enjoyed the Cranberry Vanilla Chip Scones, but thought them a bit bland, a bit in need of some je ne sais pas. (How’s that for high school French?) But since I needed to make scones again…

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 Strawberry season came early this year, and here I am allowing this scones recipe to sit unpublished in my blog archives!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…

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…

Belgian Sugar Waffle Scones

I was in a local grocery store the other week and picking up a box of Swedish Pearl sugar. I’d been to this store several times for this scone staple, but this week there was something new located right next to the Swedish Pearl sugar. It was Belgian Pearl sugar. (In case you aren’t familiar with this…
