I have the prettiest blueberry lavender scones to brighten up your breakfast table!

These bursting blueberry bites of love and blanketed with a sweet and slightly floral glaze that tastes amazing. Scones with summer fruit are one of my favorite things and I can hardly handle how delicious these are! It’s like a big bite of blueberry muffin, but not quite as sweet and with a lovely little icing on top. 

So fun!

I love the blueberry lavender combo. A few years ago, I made this blueberry ricotta cake with lavender glaze and it’s just fantastic.

Like my other favorite lavender treats, I have two ways of bringing in the lavender flavor. I’ve been making things with lavender for years now and initially, I only ever flavored things with the dried culinary lavender flowers. This is a great method and I do love the flowers. I have them on hand at all times.

It’s how I make my favorite lavender coffee syrup. It infuses a classic lavender flavor and is super good! 

P.S. I never want to forget about this lavender latte ice cream either. OMG.

However, I have found lavender extract and I LOVE that too for baked goods. For things like cakes or cookies or even these scones, I find that it brings a lavender flavor throughout the treat that can be hard to achieve with the dried flowers. Both the flowers and the extract are pricey, but both last a really long time, so you can store them on hand and have lavender dessert any time you wish!

Speaking of, I never really consider scones to be dessert. Unless it’s, like, breakfast dessert. I mostly prefer savory breakfast dishes, but then after breakfast I still want a bite of something sweet.

Enter: breakfast dessert.

It’s just like that!

These are perfect for breakfast dessert, or regular old breakfast if you’re not a crazy person like I am. They are great for brunch, afternoon tea or snacks or even real dessert at night.  (more…)

Even though Ohio weather is pretty much the worst – I mean it’s 39 degrees as I type this – I am finally starting to see little glimmers of spring even though the weatherman said there’s a chance of flurries next week.

Come on, Mother Nature it is MAY.

I even went against my better judgement and planted a bunch of Superbells this past weekend. And now I am just over here hoping that I don’t have to cover them due to said flurries.

But despite the cold temps and dreary skies, I am craving all things sweet, tart and summery. And let me tell you, even if the weather is less than ideal where you’re located, these Lemon Raspberry Scones are sure to brighter up your day and maybe even your mood!

Scones were one of the first recipes I shared on the blog waaaay back in the day. You may remember! Cinnamon chip scones are amazing. The recipe came from a friend and has always been one of my favorite baked goods to make – they are foolproof! She used to bring them in to work and everyone would fight over the last one. So delicious.

I’ve used that scone recipe to make many different varieties before – including savory versions. You can truly add anything you want to this scone dough and it will turn out wonderfully. Chocolate chips, dried fruit, cheese, roasted red peppers? Get to it!

Just maybe not all at once…

That’s why I’m so, so excited to tell you about these sun dried tomato scones! They are an at-home version of the sun dried tomato scone at de fer and have crunchy raw sugar baked into the bottom and top for texture and sweetness.

Seriously, the perfect combo of savory and sweet.

baked sun dried tomato scone

I adore sun dried tomatoes and have thrown them in quite a few recipes this last year. They are sweet and tart and have a bit of chew – a texture lover’s dream. And I love how they take regular old recipes up a notch! 

My preference is to use the sun dried tomatoes in olive oil. I drain them and pat them completely dry, then dice them up. Into the dough they go! 

The scones bake on a sheet covered in coarse sugar, so they bottoms get caramelized and sweet and crunchy! I sprinkle some coarse sugar on top too, which gets equally as crunchy and wonderful.

The end result is a perfect fluffy savory scone – that isn’t dry whatsoever – with hints of sweetness all around. It’s FABULOUS.  (more…)

Topped with a sweet orange glaze, Orange Scones are sweet, tangy, and tender. They are the best breakfast or afternoon snack with a cup of tea.

I am so over winter right now. And let me tell you, it’s not helping matters that it’s supposed to be 4°F here on Sunday.

Every single winter I ask myself why we continue to live in the Midwest. Sure, changing seasons are great, but I could really do without the freezing cold temps after Christmas.

I mean, it snowed here in early May last year and I think we went over 20 days without sunshine.

Since the weather is less than amazing, I thought I’d brighten your day and mine with these sweet and tangy orange scones.

They’re simple to make and absolutely delicious for breakfast with a cup of tea.

Sweet and Spicy Maple Pecan Scones
I do a lot of entertaining during the fall and winter, so I am always putting together desserts and brunch bakes that use some of my favorite fall flavors. These Sweet and Spicy Maple Pecan Scones make an outstanding addition to any holiday gathering, since they’re loaded with warming flavors.

Maple syrup is a fantastic sweetener because it adds a deep, rich flavor to baked goods, in addition to simply making them sweet. Good quality maple syrup is not inexpensive, and that is one of the reasons that people often shy away from using it in their baking. A high quality maple syrup is well worth the investment when it is used in a recipe where it is the star, since its flavor cannot be reproduced by using a less expensive ingredient, such as maple extract. That extract is an easy way to add a bit of extra flavor to a cake recipe that already has other ingredients working in it, but it won’t give you the same effect as the real thing in these Sweet and Spicy Maple Pecan Scones.

The scones are sweetened primarily with maple syrup and you can taste that maple flavor in every bite. I added a little bit of sugar to the dough to enhance the maple flavor without needing to drown the scones in syrup.

The spicy element of these scones comes from the addition of chopped Sweet and Spicy Pecans, addictive sweet and savory candied nuts that I make a lot around the holidays. They’re seasoned with a blend of spices, including cinnamon, cloves and cayenne pepper, and they contrast both in flavor and texture with the rest of the scones. I highly recommend making up a batch of the nuts, however you can buy similar spiced pecans that can be used in these scones, as well. I added a bit of cinnamon and cayenne to the scone dough to compliment the nuts.

The finished scones are tender, with a moist interior and a distinct – but not overly sweet – maple flavor. They can be eaten as-is, or spread with a little bit of butter. It might be tempting, but don’t use pancake syrup in place of the maple syrup in this recipe. I like to use Grade B maple syrups, or dark amber syrups, rather than the lighter “fancy” maple syrups because they have a stronger, more intense maple flavor that really comes through in the finished product.

Sweet and Spicy Maple Pecan Scones
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup milk (any kind)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup sweet and spicy pecans, homemade or store-bought, chopped

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, spices, salt and sugar. Add in the butter and toss to coat. Rub butter in with your fingertips or a pastry blender until butter is in pieces no larger than a pea.
In a small bowl, stir together maple syrup, milk and vanilla extract. Pour into flour mixture, along with the pecans, and stir until dough comes together in a coarse, not-too-sticky ball. If mixture is too dry, add in a teaspoon or two of milk. If mixture is too wet, add in a few teaspoons of flour.
Transfer ball of dough to a lightly floured surface, divide in half and shape each half into a disc. Cut each disc into quarters and place them on your prepared baking sheet, allowing room for the triangles to spread slightly.
Bake for 14-16 minutes, until golden and set.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool before serving.

Pumpkin Scones These scones are a family favorite, and might be what we wake up to this Christmas morning. “If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it.” —Lucy Larcom NOTES: Putting another baking sheet nestled directly underneath the one the scones are on helps keep the bottoms of the scones from browning too quickly before they fully bake.
