Easy to Make Scones

One of the last times I was in Arizona visiting my family, my mom and I picked up a scone mix from a vendor at the grocery store. He traveled all the way from Tucson to our Scottsdale Whole Foods to promote his buttermilk scones from the Adobe Rose Inn.

The recipe is simple: pour the mix into the bowl, add 6 tbsp. of butter and 3/4 cup of warm water.

Stir until the dough is moistened and the butter is broken down – but make sure not to overdo it! Pat the dough down into a 9-inch round greased round pan.

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes, or until the top turns a golden brown.

The scones are best served warm — and they smelled absolutely heavenly coming out of the oven!

The recipe — factoring in the added butter — dictates that you can divide the scones into 12 pieces for roughly 150 calories each. I chose to divide them into 6 pieces for a heartier breakfast option.

I must say, these scones taste great by themselves. But they taste even better with almond butter.

And they taste their very best when you combine them with a hot mug of Coffee Cocoa.
