Delicious Scone Flavor Pairings

Whether you’re a scone making expert or you’ve never even made a scone, these are easy and delicious flavors to try!

Different Scone Flavor Combinations

I used the base of this rose and lemon scone recipe to make the dough for these new flavors. I simply doubled the amount to get 4 sets of mini scones and omitted the crushed rose and rose water.

Once the dough base is ready, divide into four even parts.

Mini Chocolate Chip Scones

In the first one, add a handful of mini chocolate chips-because you can never miss with a mini chocolate chip scone! Knead gently , folding the dough over itself until the chocolate chips are evenly distributed. Try not to work the dough too much or you can end up with a dry scone.

Freeze Dried Strawberry Powder Scone

For the second scone flavor, add a sprinkling of freeze dried strawberry. I only had the powdered version but I think chopped chunks would be even better because then you can get bursts of strawberry flavor with each bite! Like the chocolate, fold the dough gently over itself until strawberry flavor is incorporated.

Earl Grey Lavender Scone

For the third scone flavor, add dried lavender and a packet of Earl grey tea to a mortal pestle and crush until powdery. Make a dip in the scone dough and pour it in. Fold gently until incorporated.

Rose and Cardamom Scone

For the final scone flavor, crush dried rose petals and cardamom for a rose and cardamom scone! This will taste very similar to a South Asian dessert called Ras Malai. Like the lavender Earl grey, make a dip in the scone dough and pour in the crushed rose petals and cardamom along with a sprinkling of rose water. Fold the dough over itself gently until incorporated.

Four Different Flavored Scones

Now slice each dough disk in half evenly. Then cut the halves in half, and cut these halves in half one more time until you have 8 even pieces for each dough disc. Try to make a clean solid cut, straight down, without sawing to ensure the shape holds together when they bake.

Slice and Refrigerate Scones

At this point it would be best to refrigerate the dough. This will help solidify any butter that may have melted during the kneading and folding process.

Freshly Baked Scones

Bake the dough in an oven preheated at 375°F for about 15 minutes or until the edges turn lightly golden.
