it’s been a long time coming

Remember how I promised to give you the recipe for my cinnamon toffee scones? Ya, it’s been a while, but I’m finally getting around to it. I’m currently somewhere over Arizona and let me tell you, plane rides are great for getting stuff done. I can’t go anywhere, or be distracted by ducks or laundry and I conveniently “forgot” my homework. Thus, a blog post! Hooray!

These were a huge hit at the office a couple of weeks ago and I’m happy to share them with you. Happy baking!

I can’t possibly think of a better way to start the morning than with some brown sugar…

Pat out the dough until about 3/4″ thick.

Then use a knife (sprayed with non-stick spray) to slice into triangles.
