Cinnamon Honey Scones
Breakfast of Champions…well, not quite. The interesting part about these scones was the cubes of honey butter that was added.
(note: this is NOT a photo of Orb…just in case you were wondering)
Speaking of champions, My friend Claudia and her husband Rob invited me to join them at a friend’s Kentucky Derby Party on May 4th. We had a nice time…great people, food, drink and a live band…very cool. I chose Orb to win the Kentucky Derby…and he won! Thrilled I picked the winner.

My Kitchen Notes:
This scone recipe was not very sweet. It needed more sweetness, in my humble opinion.
I would add some cinnamon in the batter next time.
I cut dough into 9 squares, not 12. I prefer larger scones, not smaller ones.
After brushing scones with butter, I sprinkled turbinado sugar for crunch.
Baked for more time since they were larger than what recipe indicted.
But folks, I’m sure if I went to Bouchon Bakery to have these scones, they would, most likely, be excellent.
