Cinnamon Scones



I can't believe that it's been 3 weeks since my last blog update. It seems as if life is rushing by and I'm just trying to keep up. And now that Spring is upon us, it's only going to get worse. Knowing that we will be spending more time rushing around, it's nice to know that I can make these scones on the weekends and when I need something fast I can just take a scone with be when I'm on the run.

This recipe is fantastic, and has become one of our favorites. I hope that it helps all you busy people that are looking for something quick on the weekdays. I hope you all enjoy as much as we have.

Like always, happy baking!
