Comfort Food of the Dessert World!
Here’s a wonderful idea for a special dinner party dessert – add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and give your guests a taste of heaven. Blackberries not only make a delicious dessert, they are great for you. The season starts soon with California leading the charge- picking begins late April to May.
This recipe comes Ivéta.com, in my opinion they make the best scone mixes on earth. I tasted them for the first time a few years ago, at the Fancy Food Show in NYC, and they continue to be my favorite. Their cupcake mixes are awesome too! Ivéta.com has several great recipes, this one jumped out at me and I’m going to make it for our next family get-together. The Orange Scone Mix is not available via retail outlets, however you can purchase it online for $7 per bulk bag. I ordered 3 and the shipping was $8. Hope you enjoy some too!
