Orange Pistachio Scone Bread

If you’ve been around Jem of the South long enough you know I have a slight obsession with scones. A few weeks ago I was scrolling through the gram as they say and came across a recipe for scone bread. My baking antenna immediately went up and knew I had to try this take on the scone. Once I figured out my scone combo I whipped up the recipe below and I was in scone bread heaven! This is such…

Blueberries and Cream Scones

A few years ago I had a slight obsession with baking scones. Who am I kidding? I still do. I have had my eyes on a version that included cream instead of buttermilk and butter, but kept putting off making the recipe. After my friend Linda gave me those freshly picked blueberries a few weeks ago, I knew I was finally going to make these cream scones with those berries. I was really pleased with how these turned out and…

Cranberry Orange Scones

If you are a regular visitor to Jem of the South you know that I love baking with what’s in season. Cranberries are definitely in season and using them along with orange zest has to be one of my favorite flavor combinations during the Christmas season. If you love the tartness of cranberries you are really going to enjoy these scones. If you are looking for a super sweet scone, this is not the scone for you. It’s definitely a…

Pumpkin Scones

It’s that time of year. You know, the air is cooler the leaves are changing colors and we begin to see everything pumpkin. Speaking of pumpkin. I started a little debate last year asking which was truly king or queen, pumpkin or sweet potato. You can see the post here and you can see the debate again here on my Instagram page. I didn’t grow up eating pumpkin in South Carolina, so I was totally team sweet potato and I…

Blackberry Lemon Scones

Sunday baking or weekend baking is when you’ll typically find me in the kitchen. Many food or dessert bloggers have a schedule, I loosely follow one, but I primarily bake and come up with recipes just days before I post them. I love baking and blogging this way because it seems more organic and spontaneous. I need spontaneity in my life because my life is so scheduled! I’m sure you all can relate to an overly scheduled life. 🙂 Okay,…

Cinnamon Scones with Vanilla Glaze

Last year I tried to make scones for the second time. I was so excited because the recipe called for fresh blackberries and I love blackberries! I thought to myself, these are going to be great. Well, I misread the recipe and kneaded those poor little scones to death. The recipe was a complete disaster! I continued my love affair with scones from afar, for about a year. I couldn’t bear to try making them again because I thought I…

Current Obsession~ Scones!

My current obsession is scones. I’ve made them a few times, but I have yet to master them. I’m not  an expert biscuit maker so I’m not so sure why I want to make scones which are just fancier versions of biscuits. Nevertheless, I love them and I’m determined to perfect making them!   Late last year I attempted to make Joy the Baker’s orange chocolate chip scones. Oh, was it an epic failure. I kneaded the dough to death.…

King Arthur Flour Baking Tour!

I was beyond excited when I found out that the King Arthur Flour Baking tour was finally coming back to GA this Spring. I immediately added the date to my calendar to insure that I planned nothing else for that day. I attended the morning session which included a demo on making the perfect pie crust and scones (my new obsession!). I couldn’t  wait to listen to all the tips and tricks to making pie crust because pie crust is…
