This past week, we held a bake sale fundraiser for Japan at my school and I was utterly amazed by people's sheer generosity and incredible kindness. So many individuals gave all they could -whether it was time, baked goods, or money.
The depth of people's empathy and compassion is truly astounding.
If you can, please help Japan by donating here. Or join in on Bakesale for Japan, happening on April 1 all across the nation (and at my school too)!
Onto some sweeter things!
Perfect Cinnamon Scones! I didn't have time to make these for the bake sale, but I did make these Ginger Molasses Cookies from a couple of weeks ago and they were perfect! Okay, everything at the fundraiser was a hit! I made the cookies extra big, which was great. I generally make cookies a normal size so I can eat lots without feeling so guilty, but for others, making enormous cookies is best.
Enough about those cookies and more about Cinnamon Scones!
I've never made scones before, but now I don't know why I didn't make them sooner! Super easy!
I fell in love with them while abroad a while back. Having some tea and coffee with a scone or two seems just right for any type of day. Even better, these scones are super easy and I can imagine adding blueberries or chocolate chips (if I'm feeling particularly indulgent) to make them tastier.
