Tuesdays With Dorie – Toasted Almond-Cinnamon Scones

by Jessica on February 22, 2011

Toasted Almond-Cinnamon Scones

Happy Birthday to me! It’s not the big birthday, but it’s pretty close… almost too close, if you’re asking!

I made these last Wednesday, February 16th, in celebration of National Almond Day and they were a huge hit around the office. We’ve been packing things up for a show that we’re headed to, so these were the perfect sweet treat as we took our (many) coffee break(s)! I added in a teaspoon of cinnamon and it totally took the scones over the top.

It’s no fun spending your entire birthday in the car, but these nutty scones (along with my Kindle and iPod) make it a little more bearable! Thanks to Mike of Living Out West for this week’s choice – check his blog for the recipe and if you’re in the mood for more Almond Scones, click over to the TWD site for links!

Oh yum! Almond is probably my favorite flavor out there! I have to bake scones for an upcoming baby shower and I’ve now found my recipe. Yum, yum, yum.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hope you are having a great day! wow, they look great! My favorite scone of all time is a cinnamon scone at a coffee shop near my old apt in NYC. I bet yours were wonderful!

Happy birthday! I just had one of the big ones, and it actually wasn’t too bad. Milestone birthdays get good presents. =) I love your idea of adding cinnamon to these–I’m not a big almond person, but I love cinnamon.
