Light, moist and damn delicious.
Prefect for all of the special mommas in your lives!
These aren't your typical scones, but it's Mothers Day and my momma is anything but typical.
So, these were created for the breakfast, pastry loving lady that she is!
Guys, I can't lie. I didn't think this recipe would work, but boy am I SO happy that it did! They are absolutely to die for. So fluffy, moist and so light. Anything but your typical scone and I am so ok with that!
Okay, sappy Mothers day talk just real quick.
I am so so so so so so so so lucky, I could say so for actually ever, but you get it. I am SO lucky for the mom that I have. She is everything a Mom is supposed to be and more. She is definitely my best friend and biggest support and always pushes me to be the best that I can be! Dad too 🙂 I love my parents and I will likely talk about them lots and lots because they are the best two human beings ever!
Well, I had to make her something special and she loves biscuits so much, but I've been there, done that, so I thought I would try my hand at a paleo scone with a killer glaze and man oh man, it is killllllller.
Originally I wanted to use cashew butter as the nut butter for the glaze, but turns out I had already finished the jar ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
So, I scrounged through my pantry and searched for the best compliment to these not-too-sweet, lemony, basil-y scones and I found the perfect fit! The last of my Georgia Grinders maple caramel almond butter and it was seriously the perfect flavor pairing with the lemon and basil! If you don't have this nut butter that is totally fine! Use any on hand, but I think the Georgia Grinders one or raw cashew butter would yield the best flavor combo!
Also please note that there is a vegan option too!
