Oatmeal Maple Pecan Scones

Scones are the best warm out of the oven. I’ve often found that fresh-baked scones are only at least 1/3 as good as the day before. They can become cakey and a little too doughy (and this comes from someone who loves dough and cake). Not these babies. These oatmeal scones stay almost as fresh…

Blue Cheese and Scallion Scones

These scones are cheezy fo’ sheezy! They are so good, but they are just on the line of being too cheesy. However, that being said, they’re great with soups and salads. Blue cheese is potent so to add 1 1/2 cups of it to batter is a lot. I’d take out somewhere between 1/2 and…

Apricot Scones

I am currently on a dried apricot kick. It all started recently when I found a cookie recipe with apricots and white chocolate chips. The next day I stumbled upon this recipe. I took a hint from the food blog spirits, bought a pack of dried apricots and currently on my way towards apricot expertise!…

Maple Oatmeal Scones

These scones have everything an ideal scone should have: ample flavor without being too sweet, best when hot out of the oven and a great consistency that falls somewhere between a scone and a biscuit. I’m not saying they’re not good the next day, but like most baked goods, when these are warm, they are…

Pumpkin Scones

The scones come out of oven, I immediately try one, burn my mouth slightly and wonder if they’re not sweet enough. But after I let my mouth recover and the scones cool a little more, I realize that these not being so sweet ain’t a bad thing. I reminded myself that these are pumpkin scones,…

Orange Oatmeal Currant Scones

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite scone recipe yet. They’re not too big and keep their flavor over a few days, instead of turning into big morning cakes where they’re too doughy and dense. The recipe also seems flexible enough in terms of leaving out the orange and currants and adding your own twist…

Strawberry Scones

With strawberries in season and always on sale at the market, I seem to have more of those delicious red berries than I know what do with. I’d never had a strawberry scone before and let me tell you – it’s fantastic! As you eat them throughout the week, try putting it in the toaster…

Blueberry Maple Syrup Scones

Some days lend themselves to creative activities like writing a novel, painting or in my case, baking. Last Saturday was one of those days: a little damp and too cold to go outside. So instead, I experimented with the recipe for these scones; and I have one word for you…Yum! Now, I like scones. They…
