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…

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…
