Day 13 ~ Love your neighbor ... bake them scones


My amazing White Chocolate Apricot Scones have been featured on my blog many times.

The first time was when I baked these for our friends when their daughter was killed in a car accident.

The last time was when I baked 250 scones for our daughter's wedding.


Today, I want to talk about Love your neighbor ... bake them scones.


As a follower of Jesus, I want to be known on our block, as a family that is kind and thoughtful and fun.

So, each time someone moves into our neighborhood, I try to make it over in the first week with these delicious scones.

If you have moved recently (or ever) you will remember the exhaustion and confusion.

Where is the coffee maker, the measuring spoons,  the pillow cases? You will remember working hard and being hungry, with no time to figure out just where the grocery store is.

Enter ... me, with a plate of wonderful, just baked scones, to say "welcome to our neighborhood."

Would you like the super easy recipe? 

White Chocolate Apricot Scones  
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/4 cup heavy cream

Glaze: 3 tablespoons butter
          2 tablespoons sugar, heated together

Combine dry ingredients. Add fruit and chocolate chips. Use a fork to stir in cream. Knead on a floured board 8 times.

Divide dough into 2 flat rounds. Cut each round into 6 triangles. 

Bake for 11 minutes at 425 degrees. Glaze while still warm.

Enjoy these delicious treats and share some with your neighbors.

ps. Thanks to a MOPS friend, Naomi, for sharing this recipe when we lived in Auburn. I have made them SO many times.   

What recipe do you most often share?

  1. Well, shoot. I think I'm sorry I stopped by today, Glenda -grin-. Next month, it'll be 3 years since Dave died and I've not seen the first "neighbor" unless they wanted something from me. I've hosted hot dog roasts, baked bread, knitted all the children hats and never has a "neighbor" darkened my door, sent a card or e-mail. So, I think I'm making these scones for me. Lest you think I'm a total cow, every Monday I cook supper for a family of five to help them with finances, give them a from scratch home cooked meal and to say, "Life is hard but Jesus loves you and so do I."
