I am so excited today because it’s baby shower day! My friend Rachel is pregnant with her second baby (a boy!) and a bunch of us got together to throw her a fantastic virtual baby shower!
My contribution to the shower is these tiny snickerdoodle scones. All the flavors of snickerdoodle cookies but in a flaky, buttery scone. They’re topped with cinnamon sugar before baking and then a spiced glazed afterwards. And mini sized since it is a baby shower after all! They’re delicious and addictive and you can eat 20 of them since they’re so teeny.
They are also really simple to make – the recipe calls for a food processor but if you are like me and don’t own one, just use your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients. Work quickly though because the heat from your fingers will melt the butter and you don’t want that to happen – the chunks of butter is what creates that lovely scone texture.
I can’t wait to see the new little one, Rachel! I hope you enjoyed the shower! :)
