I recently did a post on The Mason Jar Cookie Company, so I won't go into too much detail about them here. But basically they sell really adorable mason jars filled with all the dry ingredients to make delicious cookies. You just add eggs and butter, follow the directions they provide, and voila amazing cookies!
I recently found out that they also launched a scone line. For those of you who are unfamiliar with scones, I might liken them to delicious, flavorful biscuit-type pastries often eaten as breakfast or dessert. They are usually lightly sweetened with fruit or a glaze but not overly sweet. I have absolutely never made scones. Not because I don't like them, but honestly I thought it would be really complicated. So when I saw that scones were an option, I knew I had to try.
I got the cranberry almond mix, and all you need besides the mix itself is some butter and milk. You pour the contents of the jar into a bowl, and declump any clumps with your hands. Next you mix in the butter and then the milk. It's all pretty straight forward and easy.
You then form the dough into a ball, and flatten it on a greased baking sheet so that it makes a disc shape about 1 in thick. You cut the disc into 12 slices (like a pizza), separate them, and space them out on the baking sheet.
Next you toss them into the preheated oven and cook according to the instructions, until they're golden brown.
Remove these beauties from the oven, let them cool, and enjoy! SO. FREAKIN. EASY. And not only are they easy, but they are honestly SO delicious. I had to stop myself from eating the entire plate. They will definitely be on my breakfast plate tomorrow and throughout the week. Speaking of which, stay tuned to my Instagram for something exciting coming tomorrow morning!
