Blueberry & Lemon Scones With White Chocolate Chips:


      There is this local cafe that makes thee best scones. I'm talking bacon and goat cheese scones, cinnamon pecan, and even cheddar cranberry jalapeno! It's considered a special occasion and a bit of an indulgence when I stop in for my favorite coffee drink and a pastry. When I say that these outings are a little indulgent, I am also saying that they are pricey. Heading out for a cup of joe and a bite to eat can become a costly endeavor so to save a few dollars I decided to make scones of my own (hey that rhymes)! I baked up a batch of sweet treats to have as snacks through out the week. I have never made scones from scratch and decided to give these buttery triangles a try. My head was buzzing as I tried to think of various flavor combinations... cinnamon, butter scotch, pecan or maybe cranberry & orange? In the end I whipped up a couple dozen flaky and buttery blueberry lemon scones with indulgent white chocolate chips. I've been munching on them all week in the early mornings for breakfast and they look and taste just as special as the ones from my favorite local bakery! 












     It's a wide known fact that Sundays are my absolute favorite days of the week! I hope everyone is enjoying the last bits of the weekend and taking good care!

Yours,
Nico

  25. i think you did a fabulous job because these have gotten my moth watering! the cafe you mentioned sounds great but steep price tags are never fun so i think it is great that you took it upon yourself to learn how to make your own!
