A buttery-rich scone is nothing more than a glorified biscuit made even more delicious with our sweet and savory Southern twists. These fluffy treats pair exceptionally well with a cup of joe or tea. Famously known for their crumbly exterior and soft interior, these baked goods are oh-so-irresistible. We like our scones served with butter—or better yet, Mama's homemade jam. Scones are one of the most versatile baked goods that can be carried through the seasons, from fresh Peach Scones in the summer to Sweet Potato Ginger Scones in the winter. Although scones can seem intimidating, they're not all that tricky to make. Besides, Southerners are always up for a good challenge. Impress your guests by serving these sophisticated treats at your next brunch, baby shower, or even as an after-school snack. No matter where or when you serve them, one thing is for certain: These sought-after treats will be gone in seconds.
