I have to make scones for Fair Contest and am wondering what you all think would be a ribbon winning flavor? The recipe is a King Arthur Flour one, but I can add dried fruits, nuts, other flavoring.

The fair is in Vermont, so what ideas do you all have for me?

Also, any tips on making great scones? I made a trial run and they were not bad, but I bake cakes - not scones LOL! So any advice is welcome!!

Thanks everyone icon_smile.gif

Maple Nut. Starbucks here used to have a maple nut scone that was tremendous. Unfortunately, they don't carry it anymore.

I use refrigerated flavored coffee creamer in place of the liquid. I've used hazelnut flavor, and added chocolate chips, and cinammon flavor with raisins and added about a teaspoon of cinammon for extra flavor. But I'm sure there are plenty of other combinations. The only hint I have for making scones is to not over knead the dough. Good Luck! icon_biggrin.gif

Maple nut sounds like a winner to me!

I found a recipe online that my family loves. I had to stop making them because we were eating them by the dozens. They're Grandma Johnson's Scones. And there is no Grandma Johnson in our family.

Lemon, pumpkin with a spiced sugar glaze, snickerdoodle, Craisins with orange zest, blueberry, vanilla - orange.
I prefer the snickerdoodle or blueberry myself.

Yes - the Grandma Johnson scone recipe is the ONLY recipe I love and it's super easy to makeicon_smile.gif I like to make "scone strudels" and roll the scone dough like fondant or pie crust, cut into squares, fill the centre of each square with blueberries dusted in flour, sugar, cinnamon or whatever you like (as long as it's a nice thick filling or non-oozing fillingicon_smile.gif) and it not only looks and tastes great but each scone has a nice surprise inside tooicon_smile.gif
