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.

Toffee Almond Scones are perfect with a morning cup of coffee. Enjoy any time of day.

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.

Toffee Almond Scones won't leave you wanting. Filled with toffee goodness.

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.

Toffee Almond Scones

Yield: 8 scones
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 17 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes

Toffee Almond Scones are rich and buttery, and a wonderfully British way to start your morning. Don’t skip that drizzle, it’s killer!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup BAILEYS® Coffee Creamer Toffee Almond Cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter; melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar; sifted
  • 2 tablespoons BAILEYS® Coffee Creamer Toffee Almond Cream
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until combined.
  3. Grate butter into flour mixture using the large holes of a box grater. Use your fingers to work in the butter until the butter is evenly incorporated.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, BAILEYS® Coffee Creamer Toffee Almond Cream, egg and vanilla until smooth.
  5. Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. The dough will be pretty sticky at first, but as you work with it, the dough will come together.
  6. Add almonds and toffee bits and use your hands to incorporate them into the dough.
  7. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. Use a sharp, floured knife to cut the dough into 8 triangles; place on prepared baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes and prepare the drizzle.
  8. In a medium bowl, prepare the topping by mixing together the melted butter, powdered sugar, BAILEYS® Coffee Creamer Toffee Almond Cream and milk. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle glaze over the scones. I used a piping bag for a little more control.

These sound good but if I wanted to sub out the baileys but keep the same texture what are my options?

Hello! You could use cream in place of the Baileys; however, it will not have the toffee almond flavor. You could use another similar-flavored coffee creamer if you are having trouble finding the one from Baileys. Hope this helps! Happy baking. Jamie

These toffee almond scones combine two favorite flavors – toffee and almond. They taste especially great with a mug of hot coffee mixed with Bailey’s! If I don’t have almonds on hand, I find that hazelnuts make a great substitute.
