Chocolate, Oatmeal & Pecan Scones

IF YOU’RE AFRAID OF BUTTER, USE CREAM.”  Julia Child.

Chocolate, Oatmeal & Pecan Scones | From My Sweet Heart

I’m not afraid of butter or cream!  Which is a good thing since both ingredients are found in these light, chocolatey scones!

I belong to a group of bloggers who love to celebrate chocolate.  Roxana, of Roxana’s Home Baking is the founder of The Chocolate Party.  Once a month, Roxana gives us an ingredient to pair with chocolate and we get to do our thing with it.  This month’s ingredient was pecans!

I am a huge fan of scones.  I love them in all sizes, shapes and flavors.  They are such a sweet, crumbly treat.  These are made with chocolate, oatmeal and pecans.  And yes…..butter and cream!   Indulge yourself.  After all, you deserve it!%

    Amazingly I tasted a scone for the first time back in the spring. Unfortunately it was hard and dry. I’m willing to bet that I won’t be disappointed with these. Love the shape too!!

    Very yummy Anne. I’m happy I don’t have a neighborhood coffee shop that sells scones. That would be very dangerous. Also very dangerous to have a wonderful looking recipe like this in my collection. Hey, who needs a coffee shop? :)

    Why would you buy from your local coffee shop?? Look at what you make? Of course, I too am guilty of buying, especially from the coffee shop. They’re always so disappointing!
    I wish you made our coffee shops baked treats. :) I could do with one or two of these delicious scones with my cortado. They look fab Anne!

    I’m not afraid either, and I find the best scones use a combination of both! Thank you for sharing. These look so very good!

    What scrumptious scones, Anne! Looks like the perfect way to start the day…though I’d be snacking on them after lunch and dinner, too :)

    I have pounds of butter in the freezer at the moment plus most of a quart of cream in the refrigerator. So I’m definitely not afraid of either! These scones looks terrific – great combo of flavors. Particularly the pecans. Good stuff – thanks.

    What a clever scone recipe Anne! I haven’t made scones in YEARS and you’ve really got me wanting to make some in the morning. Unfortunately, no cream. Definitely putting this on my “to make” list! These look delicious – lots of flavors and great texture!
