Walnut Butter Scones

Scotland is a place I dream of visiting someday. The beautiful countryside, the food, the people, it just all sounds amazing. Scones are something I could eat everyday, all day long and I know you will enjoy them. Ideal for breakfast or for afternoon tea.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add the sour cream and walnut butter, stir together until the dough forms a ball.

Walnut Shopping Tip

Whenever possible, purchase whole, not presliced or chopped nuts. They have a longer shelf life.

Walnut Cooking Tip

Toasting your nuts helps release essential oils and intensifies their flavor.
