Last updated: Nov 17, 2016 — Published: Nov 17, 2016 — By: Anita — Leave a CommentThese scones are buttery, soft, and fluffy. The roasted pears and the chocolates are a wonderful pairing, and these scones are always a crowd favorite.
Those who know me well don’t expect me to make pretty baked goods, and I totally agree with that assessment. So it has been known and an accepted sad fact that despite being quite good in the kitchen, I am the kind of girl who still ends up having to sneak off to the nearest bakery to get a decent looking birthday cake or just any cake for that matter. If somehow this also sounds like you, don’t fret, cause you and I can still make killer scones, like these pear and chocolate scones to be precise! And for once nobody is going to judge if our scones don’t have perfect geometry, I would say that the more rustic they look the more adorable they are. Plus since the scones are definitely going to disappear soon right out of the oven, people will only rave about how delicious these are and all thought about the not-so-perfect-looking scones will not matter one bit.
For this pear and chocolate scones recipe, I use d’anjou pears, but you can also use bartlett or bosc if that is what you have at home. As for the chocolate, it can be semi-sweet or dark (a.k.a. bitter) chocolate, whether whole and chopped or in chips form.
