Tasting Tuesday: Blueberry Orange Scones with Honey Glaze

Sometimes, often at very inconvenient times like in the middle of class or during a dentist appointment, I get the incredible urge to drop everything and have a tea party.

Growing up with four sisters, we had a lot of tea parties. And who doesn’t love an excuse for a mid-afternoon break complete with scones and crumpets while pretending to be on Downton Abbey?

So, this week, I gave in.

I pulled out my Teavana loose-leaf stash, stocked up on some lemon curd, and baked some scones.

I used thisΒ recipe after failing to find lavender buds for my lavender scones idea.

I took the time to actually follow the recipe with things like mix all the dry ingredients together first and cut the cold butter into the flour (does anyone else usually skip this step?)

Orange zest

The result? They were delicious, positively exploding with berries, and all the other flaky, wonderful things that scones are supposed to be.

So, go ahead, give into your tea party impulses today. Just invite me over. πŸ™‚
