I can’t believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Four days to be exact. I think there is something so wonderful about this time of year. I just love all of the amazing food, great smells and wonderful experiences that are always shared around the dinner table. I love coming together with my family, and remembering all of the blessings that we have, and all that we are thankful for.
The last two weeks have just flown by! Wow! The boys and I have been having tons of fun at story time, playing with friends, venturing out in the snow, running errands, and of course having a blast cooking and eating. Andrew has been traveling a bunch for work, which is probably one of the reasons I’ve been a bit on the tired side 😉 All in all, the last two weeks have been incredibly fun and rewarding, and just a tiny bit exhausting. I’m very thankful for a nice LOOOONG weekend coming up!
Here are a few pictures from our adventures.
Scones! There’s just something so sophisticated and decadent about these little goodies. Firm and crisp like a cookie, with all of the fluffy goodness of a piece of cake. Ohhhh my! If you’re hosting company this Thanksgiving and need an impressive breakfast element, or just want something scrumptious to wow your family with, these Simple Glazed Scones are just the thing! They are perfect for breakfast with bacon and eggs, great for an uplifting afternoon snack, or even make for a wonderful dessert after a fun-filled day. I love them with a huge glass of ice cold milk, morning, noon, or night.
My inspiration for these scones came from a recipe I found on MyRecipes for the Best-Ever Scones. I made a few minor changes to the directions, but for the most part, this is such a dynamite recipe as it is! One change it did make was the need to refreeze the dough once it has been sliced. This helps to keep the scones cold right before they go into the oven, and helps to ensure their shape while baking. I also added a sweet glaze to top them off. I think this little touch not only makes them look fantastic, it also gives them that true bakery taste and texture.
Grab your bowl, a few ingredients, and get ready to bake. Pop them in the oven, and in a few minutes your house will be filled with the rich smell of SCONES! Simple Glazed Scones are sure to be a Thanksgiving morning (or anytime) delight.
