January Baking Challenge
Today I’m announcing the recipe for the January Baking Challenge to kick off 2020!
It was so fun seeing everyone’s festive Peppermint Oreo Truffles for the December challenge. You guys did such a fantastic job!
Stay tuned for a recap post on that challenge soon, where I’ll also be announcing the winners.
I’m so pumped for this next baking challenge because it’s one where you can flex your creative muscle! I’m encouraging you to customize this month’s recipe with whatever flavor ideas make your mouth water.
So let’s reveal the recipe…
This is one of those master recipes that belongs in your baking repertoire. You can make them virtually any flavor you can dream up.
The scones are flaky and buttery without being too dense or bland. They’re so much better than what you’d get at any chain coffee shop!! And surprisingly easy to make too.
Here’s how to participate in this challenge:
Step 1: Make a batch of Scones.
Step 2: Take a photo of your scones and share it before January 31st 11:59pm MST.
Here’s how to share your photo:

There’s also a few optional bonus entries to increase your chances of winning!
Every person who submits a photo following those directions will be entered into a random giveaway to win one of two $75 Amazon.com digital gift cards!
The prizes are available to anyone in the world who can shop with Amazon. I will purchase the gift card on your country’s Amazon homepage in the equivalent current market value of $75USD.
The winners will be selected randomly; so don’t worry about taking a perfect picture. Your photos may be put on display to share with my entire audience – that’s hundreds of thousands of people! I will email the winners. Winner must reply within 2 business days or a new winner will be chosen. Official rules are listed in the entry widget.
So what do you think? Are you up for the challenge? I can’t wait to see your scone creations 🙂
