Cherry Chocolate Chip Scones! Just the name says “Summer is almost here!”
Have you ever been cherry picking? I’ve never been, but would love to go some day! These beauties were just in my local grocery store. I only see them once a year though, so I had to pick up a few pounds. Pro-tip: don’t wear white while pitting cherries. Some stains don’t come out in the wash!
Once the cherries were pitted and I’d eaten a good portion of them (I couldn’t help myself! They’re so good when they are in season!) I began to think about other things to do with them. My grandson was helping me come up with ideas. Such a contemplative little face!
Some of the things my grandchildren and I bake on a regular basis are muffins and scones. We thought these cherries were just screaming to be added to scones. Of course, some chocolate chips were yelling to be included too.
They aren’t very pretty, but when your Sous Chefs are a year old and almost 3 years old, you don’t complain. I think they did a great job!
See! Grandkid approved!
