Chocolate Chip Scones

These chocolate chip scones are fluffy, flaky and tender! The scones are slightly sweet, filled with mini chocolate chips, and topped with crunchy coarse sugar!  I had my first day off in over a month over the weekend. It was glorious! On Saturday attempted to sleep in but was awake at 5:30am because I’m a crazy person! But then I went to brunch with friends, drank mimosas, had a ridiculously long nap, then went to dinner and a show with Mr.BB! We saw Matilda the musical. It was adorable! On Sunday I was bound and determined to bake something. I …

A bit of a twist on the classic cream scone, these Buttermilk Raspberry Scones with Toasted Almonds and Buttermilk Glaze are elegant, and incredibly light and tender. Share them with the people you love!  I feel like these scones are a perfect representation of my current state of mind right now. Cheerful. Celebratory. Happy… Guys, I am happy. I don’t know how long it has been that I could truly say that and not be lying at least a little bit. Perhaps never in my adult years. I’m happy. I’m content. And it almost doesn’t feel real. Do you ever think …

Can we all just step away from the pumpkin spice for a moment? Just for a moment. I promise you can get right back at your latte soon. But just consider that as delicious as pumpkin spice is, there are other fall flavor combinations that are equally as exciting. Maybe even more so! I created this fall recipe for VRAI Magazine to try and take a little break from the norm. Do something a little different. Apples, cinnamon, sharp cheddar, and fresh rosemary come together in this amazingly warm and cozy flavor profile. And I put that into scones! What …

Basic Scone Recipe, Bakery Style Blueberry Scones

Baker Bettie Breads, Scones 19 Comments

Whenever I think of scones I immediately think of the coffee shop in the union at The University of Kansas and their blueberry scones. I don’t think I will ever have a scone that compares. The most perfectly crafted blueberry scone. Slightly crisp on the outside, puffy cloudy and tender on the inside, with just the right amount of of sweetness and a crunchy turbinado sugar coating. Absolutely addictive. And I’m always trying to recreate those scones, because let’s face it, there are a lot of really bad scones out there. And the main problem is with the technique, not necessarily the …

Pumpkin scones with sage and spicy cherry jam just happen to be easily made vegan! Enjoy these warm flavors of Fall with a twist!  That time of year is here again. That obnoxious time, that I secretly love, where anything and everything is pumpkin spice flavored. And I hear both sides of the coin all the time. There are the people that are totally into it. All out pumpkin eeeeeverything. And they tweet and instagram and facebook it all. “First pumpkin spice latte of the season ya’ll!” You know the kind. Maybe you are the kind. I’m not judging. But …
