Carrot Scones

Carrot Scones recipe

Carrot cake mix turned into scones? Why not! It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy the flavors of carrot cake for breakfast!

We have the Scots to thank for scones. This Scottish quick bread is said to have been named for the Stone of Destiny, where Scottish kings were once crowned.

Not into raisins? Go ahead and replace them with your favorite dried fruit. (Cut dried apricots and other large dried fruits into smaller pieces before adding to the batter.)
