Did you know that August is National Olive Oil month? I had no idea. Pompeian Olive Oil, who sent me olive oil and monetary compensation, has a challenge during National Olive Oil month. Switch Olive Oil for butter. Olive oil has so many great health benefits, I decided to give it a try. I’ve got a great recipe for you today. Not only did I swap olive oil for butter in this scone recipe but I also made it just a little bit faster and easier to make scones.
I have really wanted to make some scones since we got home from our 5 week road-trip. The girls and I had a tea party with my brother and his girls while we were in Arizona. We made scones with mini chocolate covered candies on the top for our silly tea party. I wanted a little reminder of the fun time, of my home state and my family. If you know me, you know I really dislike making cookies and especially cookies that need to be rolled and cut. I just don’t have the patience for them. Scones are not hard to make, but sometimes I don’t like the whole rolling them out, then cutting them and baking them. Feels like a pain to me. I made this scone recipe just a little bit different so that I could use my medium scoop and it would be quick and easy and I could have my little trip down memory lane. View full post »
