This week's Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels but I decided to make up a recipe I missed since the group baked it before I joined: Carrot Coconut Scones with Citrus Glaze. I love scones. The Baked Boys specialize in recreating classics by giving them a modern twist. The flavor and texture of these scones can't be beat and the citrus glaze is the perfect finish.
Maple Oat Pecan Scone. Long after I left that job and resumed my life at home, I remembered those scones...and I love coconut, so I created these Coconut Walnut Scones. Adding carrots and orange never occurred to me that's why we love these guys!
These scones can be made any time of the year. Making a puree of carrot and orange juice provided a smooth, moist flavor base for the scones and the coconut and oats added layers of texture.
