Wee Snickers Vanilla Scones

Standard

I was trying to figure out my last variation when I came across some snickers in my cabinet. Honestly I have no clue how they were still there considering snickers are very popular in my house and do not last long. But to my luck, I had some and decided to make a Snickers scone. This is by far my favorite!

Wee Chocolate Chip Scones

Standard

My Wee Vanilla Scones were such a hit at my house that I wanted to figure out different ways to incorporate flavors besides in the glaze. Plus these variations will be perfect for the kids to help with at the café. I have 5 different variations and used the dough from one recipe. You can use the whole dough recipe and make one type of scone or make many different kinds.

Wee Vanilla Scones

Standard

I have attempted at scones once before and I was not completely thrilled about them. I decided it was time to try again but scratch my old recipe and start new. These Wee Vanilla Scones came out perfect. They kept a soft texture and melt in my mouth. This is a very simple recipe and uses simple ingredients. I wanted to add more flavor to them so I used different extracts to the glaze to add extra flavor. You can use any of your favorite extracts. I used a simple vanilla, raspberry, and almond. Since they all looked the same, it was a bit of a mystery on what flavor you were going to get. A wee bit of a surprise when you bit into the scone. 🙂

Mini English Custard Tarts

Standard

Someone I work with told me how much they loved custard tarts and there was no where around town that she could get them. She asked me if I knew how to make them. I had never made custard tarts, but now I had to try. I made them especially for her and she absolutely loved them and told me I needed to make them in my café. I did some research about them and came up with a recipe trying to keep it as close to the traditional British recipe as I could.

I used the same tart crust that I used in my Mini Pumpkin Pie Tarts. I thought the butter taste of those tart cups would pair perfectly with the creaminess of the custard.
