Cheddar and serrano scone from Dear Handmade LifeWhen I was younger I worked in a coffeehouse where I baked the pastries for the day. I had to wake at the crack of dawn and head over to the shop to mix and bake cakes, cookies and my personal favorite scones. Years after that job, I still made the scones and added my own changes to them adding different sugars, fruits and toppings. I think you can see a trend here on the spicy factor. My husband loves heat and over the years, I have developed a liking for all things spicy.
