Vanilla Bean Cardamom Scones

Easter morning always calls for a sweet treat of some sort, Vanilla Bean Cardamom Scones are the perfect sweet but not too sweet treat to enjoy with your Sunday coffee. Vanilla Bean Cardamom SconesI made these scones with Easter in mind. I normally make Braided Cardamom Bread for Easter morning, however since we will be away from home this year,  over Easter,  I decided to try making a scone with the same flavors. Scones are so easy to make. If you can make biscuits you can make scones! A few simple ingredients, a bowl, a fork, and a baking sheet are all you need…hopefully the condo we’ve rented will have them, because hubby said NO to bringing kitchen gear with me this year. I think that was his way of saying I need to take a break, enjoy eating out, get off my feet…he’s such a nice guy. (Or he is possible just sick of trying to figure out where to fit the pots and pans into the back of the van!….probably that and he’s a nice guy.)

 

Vanilla Bean Cardamom SconesI love the smell of cardamom. MMM! It smells so dang good. I just want to rub it behind my ears. Nutmeg too! In fact, there are a few ingredients that I would love to make into a perfume. cardamom being one, then ginger, Oh and Basil, OMAGERD I LOVE BASIL, nutmeg, and let us not forget citrus. I think I may be on to something. I can see it now, I’m sitting at a volleyball game and the person next to me says “you smell so good, may I ask the name of the perfume you’re wearing?” and I say “why yes, but it’s not a perfume” and then I haul a scone out of my pocket…”scone anyone?” Or a little baggy with a hunk of ginger, basil, and a lime. I’m gonna bring back potpourri people, only it’s for your body. Pocket Potpourri. Is that a thing?

If it’s not, don’t steal my idea. I’m calling that Sharks show right now.  That QVC chick is going to be all over this!

Vanilla Bean Cardamom SconesI just googled it. It looks like there is such a thing for stuffing in your drawers and such, but no potpourri for stuffing in your pockets. I’m not talkin’ no grandma’s drawer lavender vanilla smelling potpourri. I’m talking MMM you smell so good I want to eat you up pockpourri. (See what I did there?)

Vanilla Bean Cardamom SconesWhat flavors would you want to smell of?

Bacon?

Cheese?

LOL. Just kidding. “You smell like beef and cheese.” Name that movie…GO!

I personally would like to smell like lemongrass, ginger, lime, orange, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla bean, clove, maple, YES maple!! Not sugar. Have you ever smelled sugar…unless it’s burnt it does not smell good. It smells like feet. Weird. But true.

Ok enough already, about my new business venture. These scones taste better than they smell and they smell heavenly! So I suggest you whip up a batch for your loved ones!

Vanilla Bean Cardamom SconesI wanted you to know that you don’t have to form your scones in to two disks you can also roll them out into a rectangle and cut them as seen below.  This will allow you to get a few more scones out of this recipe.
