Scones are easy to make and are the right cross between muffins and biscotti. Scones are not too soft, too hard, too sweet, or too savory. They have just the right amount of buttery flavor and work great with all kinds of add-ins like chocolate chips, nuts, and, our favorite, cranberries.

If all this isn’t enough reason to love scones, there’s another reason. Scones pair perfectly with Epicurean sweet flavored butters.

Whether you make a batch of scones for brunch guests, breakfast in bed for mom, or just an ordinary treat, we highly recommend this recipe, especially if you top it with Epicurean Butter Maple Syrup Flavored Butter.
