Coconut Scones for Two

DSC 0241

Last weekend, we went to the Johnston Tea House in Mars, Pa for a girls lunch of tea. It was a fun afternoon or finger sandwiches and small tastes of delicious desserts. My favorite thing there is the scones. So, I decided that I had to make scones for breakfast to replicate my favorite thing at tea. Since I am currently obsessed with coconut, I made coconut flavored scones.

Scones are traditionally served with clotted cream. However, I think at the Johnston Tea House, they serve whipped cream. I used this recipe. I also served them with raspberry jam.

Scones are really not good as leftovers. They have to be eaten the day they are baked. So, this recipe that makes 2 large or 4 small scones is perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch.
