Cinnamon-Eggnog Scones with Blonde Chocolate

I must say that I love the lazy “holiday hangover” days between Christmas and New Year’s, when you don’t know what day it is without thinking about it for a sec, when you’re still snacking on holiday cookies, and when most of the events are over. Let me preface this next bit by saying that […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Nutella Scones (& Vanilla Bean Affogato Cameo)

Sometimes I forget how amazing Nutella is… Wow, seeing those words written down, I do realize how ridiculous it sounds. BECAUSE WHO COULD FORGET ABOUT NUTELLA. I don’t bake with Nutella nearly enough, so I took the opportunity this week to open a new jar and get reacquainted. Our current Baked Sunday Mornings recipe is Vanilla […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Maple Walnut Scones

I need a Scone Support Hotline. I love making, baking, smelling, holding, and eating scones– every possible sensory experience that can be had with scones, I want to have it.

To be honest, I was slightly annoyed at first because I am all up in the holiday flavors and I’m not […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Chinese 5-Spice Sesame Scones

And yet, I’ve thought about the importance of sesame since I attended a talk […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones

My last post featured a scone of the dainty English variety, which I was inspired to make as a contrast to this rustic, chunky, indulgent number! These Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones are more suited to a tall glass of chocolate milk than a cup of tea, in my opinion. Alternatively, one might just […]

Perfect with a Spot of Tea: Currant Cream Scones

I’ve got scones on the brain. This weekend’s Baked Sunday Mornings assignment is a “rustic” scone recipe. In preparation for this, I was inspired to conduct a little scone contrast experiment. I’ve mostly baked the traditional, English-style scone, which I find to be utterly delightful and comforting. My early baking was heavily influenced by recipes […]
