We have been crazy for scones around my house lately. I just can’t get enough of them. I’ve been making a few batches every week. I love them with coffee in the morning, or as a snack in the afternoon. They even make a great snack for my son’s lunchbox. I’ve been making lots of different flavors, and these tangerine and mixed fruit scones are my latest creation.
Citrus is in season in Florida now. The oranges, tangerines and tangelos are dirt cheap. I pick up a few every time I go to my local farmer’s market. In addition to a very juicy tangerine, I used a bag of mixed dried berries, and a little vanilla. These scones made the whole house smell wonderful as they baked. Their intense aroma was a great way to wake up my family on a Saturday morning.
