We love being in the kitchen, even the kids do. Some days it is actually hard to get the kids out of the kitchen. Which can be hard for me, the kitchen is my domain. A lot of times when I am feeling sad, mad or just not in the right place, I go to the kitchen. It can bring a smile to face thinking of all the memories I have from being in the kitchen and it can bring a calmness. So spending time with Jimmy and the kids in the kitchen is important to everyone in the family.
These scones were the kids idea. Isabella wanted scones and JJ wanted pumpkin and chocolate chips. I just happen to have salted caramel chips from Trader Joes and that was the perfect touch to the scones. You can use all chocolate chips if you want. Make sure to use super cold butter, I like to use frozen butter. When the scones bake the butter just melts throughout the scones. This gives the inside of the scone a flaky texture with a little bit of a crisp edge. Making for the perfect scone. Plus they are full of flavor.
If you are not a fan of scones, I just you try one of my recipes. My scones are always moist and I really only make drop scones. Let’s be honest, a drop scones and your traditional rolled and cut scone will taste the same. So don’t be afraid of baking scones, they are actually pretty easy to make.
