Today I am excited to be guest-posting over at Your Modern Family.
Have you all ever tried those little scones from Starbucks? I think they have a fancier name like “petite vanilla bean scones”. Now, I don’t love all Starbucks baked goods, but those are delicious! I don’t know what I love more: the moist crumbly scone, the vanilla glaze or the fact that they are so mini and adorable.
A few weeks ago, my mom and I were planning the menu for my sweet sister-in-law’s baby shower. I was going to make fresh lemon buttercream frosted cupcakes or fresh lime, basil, and strawberry hand pies. Then at the last minute, I decided that because mini anything just seems perfect for a baby shower, I’d create an adorable, mini scone of my own instead!
With those Starbucks vanilla scones as my inspiration, I started experimenting! My favorite combination was lemon and white chocolate – my goodness were they delicious! The scone itself isn’t too sweet (I only used 3 tablespoons of sugar) and has a little zip from the lemon zest and juice, so a quick dunk in white chocolate was the perfect touch! You could totally add some white chocolate chips to the scone dough, but I wanted a fluffy, tender scone, without any add-ins. I think that these little scones were even better than my Starbucks inspiration!
For the rest of the post (and the recipe!) – go visit Your Modern Family today!
Oh and coming soon, I promise to share with you another variation of these – mini lemon scones with a lemon glaze!
Hope you enjoy,
