Spiced Pineapple Scones


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple (packed in juice)
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Light cream or milk
  • 3 tablespoons chopped macadamia nuts or almonds
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar


  1. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, the 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center.
  3. Stir in undrained pineapple just until dry ingredients are moistened (dough will be sticky).
  4. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently 10 to 12 strokes. Roll dough 1/4 inch thick. Cut dough with a floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Transfer scones to an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Brush tops with light cream or milk.
  6. For topping, stir together nuts, the 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon. Spread about 1 teaspoon of the topping over each scone.
  7. Bake at 425 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Serve warm.

Yield: 12 scones
