Recipe: Almond Joy Scones

If How Sweet It Is wants us to be introduced to these scones, then I think it is a must! These sound absolutely wonderful and I will be translating ingredients into German to find all the goods at the store today. Find these pictures, the recipe, and all other information here!

Almond Joy Scones

From How Sweet It Is and [adapted from these scones]

makes 16 scones

  • 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold butter (1 1/2 sticks), cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • raw turbinado sugar for sprinkling
  • 3 ounces of chocolate, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. In large bowl combine flour, almond meal, sugar, coconut, baking soda, powder, and salt.. Cut in butter until it forms coarse crumbs with the flour mixture – I actually use my hands to combine and mash the butter in. Stir in buttermilk, coconut extract and vanilla extract. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently.
  3. Divide dough in half and pat into 7-inch round circles.. Cut into 6 or 8 wedges, or use a round biscuit cutter. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse sugar
  4. Bake at 425 for 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool, then drizzle with melted chocolate.
