    Omg. Made the lemon scones. Doubled the amount of zest and they are so yummy. It was so easy yr way of adding butter to the cream. Can't wait to try the others!

      Awesome! Thanks, Mary!

    I found myself with a lot of heavy cream that was going to expire in a few days. Perfect for making 3 different batches of your scones. I only baked a few and froze the others to bake later. Just wondering how long you"ve kept the glazes in the fridge. Would you use the microwave briefly to softem them ? This way I can just bake a few at a time, since there are only 2 people at home. I love to share with friends and neighbors, but I still like the idea of just making 2 o 4 at a time.


    • Chris Scheuer says

      Hi Inge, I think you could freeze the glaze as well. Then just thaw and give it a good stir before glazing the scones. You might have to add a few drops of liquid but otherwise, it should be fine!

    Have you written a cookbook? If not you should! I would purchase it.

    • Chris Scheuer says

      Thanks so much, Connie! I don't have a cookbook. I've had a few offers but feel like the time involved would interfere with my priorities which are my faith, family and community (which includes the blog!).
