Hot Cross Scones



After my first attempt at making scones a few weeks back (CheddarberryScones) I was eager to try more. My combo of cheddar and strawberries went well, so what else could I come up with?

As it is Easter soon, I wanted to try and encapsulate this holiday in a scone. My mind got to thinking and I thought of putting a Hot Cross Bun and a scone together. If you aren't familiar with Hot Cross Buns, they are usually a soft sweet bun with fruit and spices in them. They are topped off with a pastry or iced cross.

I found a recipe and these scones had added allspice, mixed peel and sultanas. And I made the thick sugary crosses on top with natural orange flavoured icing sugar, to give them a bit of added citrus zing and crunch. I received the orange icing sugar from the kind people at Sugar and Crumbs, who did a lot if different flavoured icing sugars and cocoa powders. amongst other things. 



I wrote this recipe for a guest post at my friend Stephanie's site - check it out there...Munch I Munch
