My husband has always found my love of scones to be odd. I think it’s odd though that he doesn’t love scones. I love their texture, taste, and really everything about them. Naturally enough when we were engaged I put a scone pan on our registry, and we were lucky enough to receive one as a wedding gift. I’ve used it a few times since then, and have figured out the perfect scone recipe. I love pears, especially in the Fall, so today I’m sharing with you an easy pear scone recipe. Don’t have a scone pan? That’s perfectly fine, you don’t need one (although you can always buy one here
). These are light, flavorful, and delicious. They are great served with tea, or without tea as a little snack. Even my 7 month old loves them. Let’s get started!
Here’s what you need:
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
- 1 3/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 Cup Half and Half
- 1 Ripe Chopped Pear (About 1 1/2 – 2 Cups)
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 Teaspoon Allspice
Here’s what you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease your scone pan or cookie sheet. Chop up your pear.
Using an electric mixer or mixing by hand, mix your flour, salt, baking powder, brown sugar, cinnamon, and allspice. Chop your butter into slices (do not soften) and add that as well, mixing until mixture is crumbly.
In a separate bowl whisk your egg and half and half. Add this to the flour mixture. Stir in the pear pieces. At this point your batter should look like this:
Either pour your mixture into your greased scone pan
or drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet (you can always try to arrange your batter into scone shapes if you’d like).
Bake around 20-25 minutes, until your scones are golden brown.
