Oh man… Valentines day is right around the corner! A lot of people always worry about where they are going to for Valentines Dinner but I think there is nothing better than to surprise your sweetie with a little breakfast in bed on Valentines day! These scones are the perfect way to start your day, add a fabulous bunch of roses and some freshly squeezed Orange Juice and you can guarantee that its going to be a fantastic day.
Actually I take it back… if my boyfriend made these for me I could do without flowers, chocolate and a card… (hint hint – hope your reading this bf!!!)
These scones are fairly simple and you can make in under 40 minutes and then hide them away for your surprise the following morning.
When my sister and I were little, we went to England for a few weeks over the summer and my mom would always order scones from different bakeries and I would always sneak a quick bite and then make an unpleasant face and go back to my own snack. I think that they were all a little too dry for me. After a little tweaking to a family recipe, I was able to come up with a great recipe for scones that are moist but still flaky. The addition of a little extra cream makes all the difference in the world…
I am so excited you are making one of my recipes and I would love to see how it turns out. Make sure to share it on instagram and tag me @whatsgabycookin so I can see your masterpiece!
