Strawberry Cream Scones

Good morning, friends. Anybody need strawberry cream scones? We have 2 unclaimed batches from last night’s baking adventure. Kim will be making deliveries from 2pm-8pm today. If you’re interested in giving one (or both) of them a home, send her an email at before 6pm. $15/batch or both batches for $25.

Scone of the Month Club

What you get: a fresh batch of scones every month. You can request a flavor*, or let us surprise you (browse our photo gallery for some of our favorites)! Either way, you get eight scones (that freeze and reheat beautifully, by the way) a month, and we get to keep the lights on. Everybody wins. 12 months of this madness will set you back $180. For 6 months, well, you know. Half that.

Added bonus: Once you’ve signed up, if you wanted to share all this wonderfulness with a friend, you can knock $5 off each delivery. That makes a gift membership $120, or $60 for half the year.

Interested? Get in touch with us through our contact form, or connect with us on Facebook!

*Certain scone varieties cost us more to make, due to the price and availability of ingredients (like macadamia nuts) or the extra labor and time required to make them (like cinnamon scones, or converting one regular wheel into two wheels of mini-scones). If you request one of these varieties, we’ll be sure to let you know how much more it will cost you, and then we’ll confirm that you agree to the additional amount before we deliver them to you.
