Scones have rapidly become a new obsession of mine. I have always loved quick and simple recipes, and these delicious scones are considered a quick bread. No mixer is required because you need to mix the dough with a gentle hand. Make sure that your bowl and butter are really cold and you have the beginnings of a delightful treat! After I cut out my butter into small pieces, I freeze it until it is needed.
I love that they are just a tiny bit sweet. These gluten free, chocolate chip pecan scones are perfect with a cup of coffee or tea any time of the day, but my husband and I especially love to have these on the weekend mornings with our coffee when we have time to catch up with each other.
Traditionally served with jam and clotted cream, we enjoy ours warmed up with Jessica’s homemade jam and a bit of whipped butter. I also have it on good authority that they are delicious when dunked into a steaming cup of hot chocolate.
Once you pat your dough into a circle, cut the dough into whatever size scones you prefer, whether that be eight large, twelve small, or somewhere in between. If you prefer, you can also cut them out with a round cookie cutter. Be careful to watch your baking time. Whatever size you choose, you want lightly golden tops and golden brown bottoms.
