I have a thing for the maple and brown sugar flavor. I love it in oatmeal and I love it as a cookie. I even have a thing for maple syrup. But, I have never eaten a scone before. To me, they always seemed like a dry biscuit and that never made them appealing to me. But I suddenly wanted to try to make them. So I browsed around for the easiest and delicious scones I could find. And to come found out, they aren’t all that dry! I adapted this recipe from the food blog, How Sweet It Is, and added my own flare. The recipe was originally for Maple and Bacon Scones. Instead I decided to make Maple Brown Sugar Scones. Yea, ummm, I wasn’t really feeling the bacon all that much. Speaking of bacon, has the world gone mad with things they can make with bacon, or is it just me? I have seen chocolate covered bacon (didn’t like it at all), bacon in cakes, bacon in cookies, deep friend bacon, chocolates wrapped in bacon, I even seen candy bacon which are large chunks of bacon with a sweet glaze on top of them. They were pretty tasty but it was way to much salt for me. All I’m saying that bacon doesn’t need to go with everything.
These scones would go great with coffee, although I don’t drink coffee, and maybe a side of bacon :-).
