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…

Red Velvet Scones w/Cream Cheese Icing

Well, about a month ago, this was going to be a Valentine’s Day scone post. But the first batch turned out so awful that I couldn’t share it (bland!). And then I kind of forgot about it (maybe that was not so unintentional?). But now, going through my blog archives of unposted, half-finished recipes and…

Blueberry Lavender Scones

Wow. Somehow last week disappeared into oblivion! Until this morning, I fully believed I had posted a scone recipe last Tuesday. Mea culpa. That said, I have decided to begin posting every two weeks (I hope). The reason for this is simple: I’m expecting my first child in under a month. I doubt that, with…

Lemon Raspberry Mascarpone Scones

So that week when I made Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Scones–remember those? (Which some people claim to have liked?) Yeah, well, I overbought on lemons, and ended up with about 8 leftovers. (I bought a bag, all right?) So with that many lemons to use before they went bad, I had to come up with another lemon…

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…

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…

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…

Dairy Free Coconut-Pumpkin Scones

What could be more fall than pumpkin scones? Really, without pumpkin spices, pumpkin is just a rather bland squash, but throw in some cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, cloves…oh, and a bit of coconut perhaps, and you’ve got a winning combination.  I really enjoyed this latest pumpkin creation…it’s a thicker scone, not the typical buttery and flaky…
