Yeasted Blueberry Scones

This recipe was inspired by Angel Biscuits, which are biscuits made with yeast. They have a crumbly, rich, crust surrounding a crumb that is lighter than a baking powder biscuit and more like a roll or a soft muffin. So basically, you get the best of both worlds!  Plus the scones are a little puffier […]

lemon scone

I’ve used pudding mix in several recipes including lemon muffins, but I never thought to try it in scones until recently when I saw a copycat version of the Starbucks scones. That recipe calls for vanilla pudding, and since I’d purchased several boxes of lemon pudding mix for some reason (I think I was going […]

Not-So-Squirrely Scones

Last night while re-reading Dreena Burton’s Vive le Vegan!, I came across a recipe called Squirrely Scones. I’ve passed it up dozens of times and don’t know why, considering the ingredients are things we keep around the house and that we love scones. So this morning, thinking I’d surprise Fuzz with some scones (she’s going […]

Honey Orange Scones

Fuzz and I made these in an attempt to use up some oranges we bought earlier in the week.  And while we typically don’t love orange flavor in bread nor honey flavor in large amounts, the two flavors balanced each other out and tasted great.  What was really special was the texture.  Unlike heavy, biscuit-like […]

gingerbread scone

I hope everyone had a happy holiday!  Ours was fun, but different.  I didn’t cook and that felt weird, but being the bartender was fun and I’m proud to have introduced the family to “Whipped Cream Vodka” and Fulton’s Pumpkin Cream Liqueur. Speaking of which, there was no pumpkin pie, just buttermilk pie, and …

Biscoff Scones

This week I purchased a jar of Biscoff, a spread made with the popular Belgium spice cookies. If that sounds strange to you, you’re in good company. But if you see it at your local Central Market or Wal*Mart (or the grocery store in your area that likes to give shelf space to new and […]
