Mother's Day Scones.

I went home this past weekend to celebrate Mother's Day with my wonderful, giving, and amazing mom! She's a spectacular cook! Because of that, she rarely relinquishes her kitchen duties. She wanted to have a Mother's Day brunch for everyone, and I insisted I help with something. We decided cream scones with mock devonshire cream would be the perfect accompaniment to egg & sausage casserole, fresh fruit salad, cheese grits, homemade banana bread, and strawberry butter. Scones used to intimidate me, until my mom showed me how to make them a couple Christmases ago. Now I'm a pro. Kind of.  :) Here's what you need to know...

The recipe.

Butter needs to be cold - right out of the fridge. I find cutting it into chunks helps it incorporate easier.


This is what the dough should look like once all the butter is in.
Incorporate until butter resembles the size of small peas.


Handle dough as little as possible. 
It makes the scones more flaky, the less you handle it.


Cut the scones as big or small as you want.
I sprinkled these with baker's sugar from William Sonoma.


Finished product!! SOOOOO AMAZING! (If I do say so myself)


Warm & Fresh from the oven. This is a recipe you MUST try!


The extras: strawberry jelly, devonshire cream (fantastic!), and strawberry butter.



Hope everyone had a great weekend with their Mothers! xx

  8. Strawberry butter sounds like the most perfect spread in the world. I just ate dinner but reading this post made me hungry again!

    Also, I completely relate with your curly hair! Mine's really thick and wavy so whenever it's short, I basically become engaged to my hair straightener. And then we break up. And then it looks awful. It's a cruel cycle.
