These easy to make Cinnamon Honey & Fig Scones are sweetened with honey, cinnamon and filled with black mission figs. Great for breakfast, brunch or dessert!
Remember when I’ve mentioned not knowing how to bake like 10 gajillion times on the blog in the past?
Yeah. I think that phase of my life is officially over because these scones turned out ah-mazing.
A couple of weekends ago, I had a really strong urge to step out of my comfort zone and shake things up a bit with my food. So I thought about what made me uncomfortable in the kitchen and intentionally decided to jump in.
That one thing? Baking.
Baking and making desserts has always been intimidating to me. It was the whole “baking is a science” thing that just turned me off.
People say that as if it’s comforting, but little do they know that I was totally clueless in my middle school science class. I had no idea what was going on! I literally just memorized a few facts and definitions and acted like I understood.
So that’s what I decided to do with baking – fake it ’til I make it.
I sat down, opened up a handful of cookbooks and my favorite blogs, read and began studying.
The best part about this whole baking stuff? Experimenting and playing around with different flavor combinations.
This scone recipe has a good amount of cinnamon and chopped figs in it (Mexican flavors!) that are warm and comforting, perfect for weekend breakfasts and brunch.
Those glistening little crystals on top of the scones? That’s turbinado sugar. I bought some for the first time and I’m obsessed.
One of these Cinnamon Honey & Fig Scones with a glass of cold milk or hot coffee in the morning = perfection.
