I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I LOVE blogging about desserts!! Anytime I create a treat recipe, it makes me SO excited! Partly because desserts (especially baked ones) can be tricky to execute, so when they turn out, it feels like a huge victory! And partly because the photos are fun to take, the clean-up is minimal, and the reward is oh-so-sweet.
This week, these Paleo Frosted Cherry Scones had me jumping for joy when they came out perfectly on the first try! (Woohoo!) What’s even better is that their appearance here on Fed and Fulfilled coincides so well with Mother’s Day! So, if you’re still looking for gift ideas, why not bake up a batch of these lovelies and enjoy them over tea with your mom or other special ladies in your life?! 🙂
Not only are my Paleo Frosted Cherry Scones pretty to look at, but they taste wonderful, too! The texture is lightly crisp on the edges and soft and almost buttery in the middle, thanks to the coconut butter and coconut oil. They also have a light almond flavor (which is optional for strict AIP folks) and are bursting with dried cherries. And to finish them off, I drizzled them with both plain and cherry coconut butter frosting. Perfect with your tea or coffee, delicious as a dessert, and healthy enough to cap off breakfast or brunch! So, make mom proud and show off your baking expertise with a fresh tray of scones to share with her this weekend!
