So sorry its been a few days, we are in the process of moving so things may be a bit slow for a few weeks.. But I have an amazing recipe for you today! This was my first time making scones, and they turned out incredible. I’ve had scones from Starbucks, coffee shops, and more – and these were by far the best ones I’ve ever had! This recipe is scone perfection. Buttery, soft and flaky with the perfect combo of just a little sweet with a pop of tartness 🙂 Originally the recipe called for blueberries instead of cranberries, but I only had cranberries when I decided to make these, but they were just as good if not better! The cranberries became sweet and juicy as they baked, pairing perfectly with the lemon. If you love scones like me or if you’ve never made them before – this recipe is super simple and beginner friendly! Give it a try and let me know what you think! Happy baking!

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God,
to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew,
He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son,
so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;
and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified;
and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all,
how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?”
