    Hey, I like both scones and boy bands!

    Julie where did you get the paste?

      Carrie – I get mine at the Cookbook Company, but it’s fairly easy to find – in fact I’ve seen it often in the baking section at HomeSense and Winners!

    Carrie, I wanted to ask the same thing.
    Ha ha! Oh, how you make my day with your writing, Julie. “a spread of all-you-can-eat beige in the morning…” that’s EXACTLY how I feel about those “included” hotel breakfasts. I try to eat real at them and it’s darned near hopeless.
    Sometimes they have *very* hard-boiled eggs. I want the protein, but… oh, my.
    Usually, for me, it’s a piece of w/wheat tost, little peanut butter, and an orange if they have them. I am grateful for the food: I realize it’s not easy to please everyone, keep it stocked, clean, and moving along.
    But I so much prefer *your* all- you- can- eat idea! especially so beautifully accessorized with drizzled icing.

    Just made these, using Dannon lowfat yogurt.
    They came out light and gorgeous! Best scones we ever ate, hands down.
    I added lemon zest to the mix, and lemon juice to the vanilla icing!

    So what’s the difference between a biscuit and a scone? Richer, more sugar? I just made my stand-by baking powder biscuits and realized how similar the recipe is to this.

      Yep, they’re pretty similar, and you nailed it – scones are typically made with an egg and more sugar. A little richer, sweeter and denser than a biscuit.

    Williams Sonoma also carries the vanilla bean paste.

    I really enjoy your writing Julie. And you do inspire me to cook and bake more than just the same old standbys. Keep up the great job.

    How did I not know that you’re a fellow Alberta gal? (I’m from Edmonton)
    PS. These look fabulous. Nothing beats a good scone, in my opinion.

    Love these. Starbucks has mini ones and every time I see them I am so sad because of course they sound wonderful but old scones are, well, old scones. So clearly I should just make these next time the craving hits!

    Oh, my!
    I’ve been looking for a Starbucks knock-off. I have wandered from following your blog of late… thanks for the open-arms welcome back with this recipe :)
    I must have been experiencing amnesia to have stayed away so long. You are hereby bookmarked!

    I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and
    see if the problem still exists.

    Was I the only one where the dough was sooooo sticky that I couldn’t pat it, let alone cut it? Maybe 3 cups of flour? Help!!
