Homemade gifts are always appreciated. Knowing someone took the time to bake something special for you makes the holiday season seem even more joyful. If you want to bake but don’t want to spend time scooping out cookie dough on multiple trays, try making scones.
Once you make the dough, pat or roll it into a circle, score the top and it’s ready to bake.
Not familiar with scones? They are traditionally served at afternoon tea with butter or jam. You can also enjoy them plain, especially if they are made with fruit. More substantial than a muffin, scones are also delicious for breakfast. Our scone has dried cherries and crunchy almonds, and sour cream makes them very tender.
With colorful cherries and sparkling coarse sugar on top, these scones would make lovely gifts wrapped in cellophane or served at a holiday brunch.
