Cinnamon Swirl Scones

Cinnamon Swirl Scones

Who says tea parties are just for kids? A relaxing get-together over a cup of tea and a few baked goods is the perfect way to spend an afternoon and give yourself a break from the rest of your busy day. Tea time snacks could include cookies or cake, but nothing goes with a cup of tea quite as well as a freshly baked scone. ... Read More »

Buttermilk Cherry Thumbprint Scones

Buttermilk Cherry Thumbprint Scones

A buttery scone is usually a perfect match for jam, which adds some extra sweetness and flavor to the rich breakfast pastry. I typically serve the jam on the side, but these Buttermilk Cherry Thumbprint Scones have the jam baked right in! Cherry preserves are piled into the center of these scones before baking, giving you a sweet center surrounded by buttermilk and vanilla-kissed dough. ... Read More »

As soon as it gets warm enough to enjoy dinner outdoors, I count that as the start of s’mores season.

Rustic Buttermilk Scones

Rustic Buttermilk Scones

A well-made scone that is fresh out of the oven is something that is just about irresistible. A scone in the pastry case of a coffee shop, on the other hand, is a lot easier to pass up. Many commercially made scones (in the US, anyway) are dry and cakey, and while you can get them down with a cup of coffee, they’re just generally ... Read More »

Pina Colada Scones

Pina Colada Scones

An icy, blended pina colada is a drink that reminds me of being on vacation in Hawaii, where I’ve had some of the best pina coladas (in the best atmosphere) that I can remember. It’s a combination of coconut, pineapple and rum blended up with lots of ice. Every time I have one, it takes me back to my last trip out there. And even ... Read More »
