I’ve been on a scone making kick for some time now and it’s time I combine my love for making scones with my love of pumpkin. Every year Starbuck’s makes a delicious pumpkin scone with a thick sugar glaze that I look forward to devouring alongside a cup of coffee or my all time favorite, a chai latte. It represents Fall in every bite!
Yes, another scone recipe. I just love scones! Always simple to make and very versatile. This combo came to me as I was thinking of something to bake for a new group I was attending. I love baking and sharing and I only had 2 hours before our group was meeting. Hmmm, what to make?
I love the petite vanilla bean scones offered at Starbucks. Even better, they sell them in sets of three for a discount but I tend to run into a little problem each time that leaves me empty handed. I’ll order one set of three, hand them back to a pair of hands ready for the sweet vanilla bean goodness, who then passes out the other two, and poof they are gone. I end up wondering why I didn’t just order four in the first place. Solution. Make my own!
Do you ever feel like you just came up with a recipe that no one ever thought of, only to google it and find out its been made in several variations? LOL, that’s me all the time. I still have hope that I will come up with a really unique recipe that no one has ever thought of. Back to the scones…These turned out delicious, refreshing, and exactly how I envisioned them! The glaze gives it that zip and just rounds out the whole scone with each bite. Don’t let this recipe pass you up if you love the flavor of key limes or citrus. Enjoy!
I love scones and I wanted to make some with a light orange flavor. I found a great recipe to start with and then got a little creative. The original recipe calls for sour cream and I decided to replace the sour cream with an orange cream yogurt. I also added orange extract and the zest of one orange. This time around I used a round cookie cutter instead of cutting into triangles. I sprinkled them with sanding sugar and later added an orange glaze. They turned out light, fluffy, and had a great orange flavor. Enjoy with a hot cup of tea or coffee. Next time I may add mini…
