Okay, people, it’s here. It’s finally here! Cardigan and Ugg Boot weather. Though if I’m perfectly honest with you, in my house, it’s always Ugg Boot weather. It might be 90 outside, but it’s a cool 70 in my house, making cozy slippers and boots a must.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be leaving behind the dog days of summer. While I will miss playing outside at the water table with my babe before long, it’s time to bake ALLTHETHINGS.
Fall is 100% my jam. It’s my favorite season of the year, which anyone perusing the Autumn recipes section of MBA will quickly realize. I make no apologies. I am that basic girl, and I will Pumpkin Spice everything I can get my hands on.
But before we hit the pumpkin spice, I thought we should try an understated cold-weather favorite: Toffee. Buttery toffee is one of my favorite flavors, period. If you put something chocolate in front of me, and something toffee – I’m almost always going to choose the toffee first. That’s not to say I won’t go back and eat the chocolate thing too, but Toffee first.
It’s kind of my rule in life.
And I don’t know about you, but as soon as there’s a chill in the air, I’m ready to move past toast for breakfast, and straight onto scones. There’s just something so comforting about a beautiful wedge of sweet scone paired with my favorite creamy coffee that makes life worth living, people.
These Toffee Almond Scones are made with BAILEYS® Coffee Creamer Toffee Almond Cream and delectable crunchy toffee chocolate bits. Just a little bit of decadence to start your day off with a bang. It’s what I do.
Do you know the trick to make scones easily? Frozen butter. It’s all about the frozen butter. And a cheese grater. Say what?!
Scones are one of those things that seem really complicated to make, until you figure out that using frozen butter, grated with a simple cheese grater, into the dry ingredients, works far better than trying to cut in with a pastry cutter or two forks.
Then you add the wet ingredients, mix together until you’ve got a cohesive dough, and done.
Using BAILEYS® Coffee Creamer Toffee Almond Cream as the creamy component in these scones means you get a lovely, buttery sweet undertone to each bite. The addition of crunchy, chocolate-covered English toffee bits doesn’t hurt either.
Then there’s the sweet drizzle. I think I’ve outdone myself with this one, but you’ll have to try it for yourself and let me know.
Grab a cup of coffee, add some BAILEYS® Coffee Creamer Toffee Almond Cream, and then dig into these super yum, super easy scones. And enjoy that crisp chill in the air. It’s time.
