Creamer Scones

Teresa Jacobson


This was a popular choice in my coffee shop/deli. It uses a flavored non-dairy creamer instead of standard cream. Hazelnut was always the most popular but really any flavored creamer would work. Vanilla Caramel is another yummy choice. These are not as dry as some scone recipes can be, and they have tremendous flavor. White chocolate chips can be used instead of semi-sweet. This really is the best scone recipe ever! Remember, the key to a good scone is DON'T OVER MIX THE DOUGH!
