I am not a scone lover.  I have never been and I didn’t think I ever would be… until I met these scones.

My 15 year old daughter is a tremendous baker!  She’s been baking for years and is truly talented in the kitchen.  As much as I would like to take credit for the bundles of yummy… they were made by my daughter!  (Thanks sweetie, they are amazing just like you).

These sweet and simple melt in your mouth scones are so amazing with a coffee or even as dessert!   I’m telling you, I’m hooked!

  6. Hi Holly! Ok, I for one really love scones!! However, I had a near disaster encounter with making my own last summer when we almost used them as door stops. So dry and heavy! Is this recipe pretty moist? You just might’ve convinced me to try homemade scones one more time…

    1. I generally find scones to be dry which is why I’ve never been a fan! I find these ones moist and tender, let me know how they work out for you!

  7. Those look delicious! I also didn’t like scones for a long time, it was chocolate chip scones that changed my mind too!

  8. I love scones and these look wonderful:) All you need is a cup of tea~Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines
