On Friday I was all, “I just have to take off by 2:45 in order to make it to happy hour.” On Saturday I was all, “Gotta set my alarm! I have a brunch date at 10am.” You see, I like it when I have a tighter deadline due to happy hour plans and when I have to get up early for brunch. Some things are worth getting less sleep over. And other things, like scones, are good for those 40 minute weekend intermissions.
You can whip up these scones between brunch and bagel deliveries and movie dates and dog walks. And they taste like a farmer’s market adventure paired with a valentine dress. They are tart from the cherries and crispy crunchy from the pearl sugar. And can’t we all just agree that this glaze would be the perf nail color?
