Long Live The Weekends!

Why do fun weekends have to end so quickly??? My mom came for a girls weekend and boy did we have FUN! This weekend was all about creativity as we thrifted and hit up Michaels and Craft Warehouse (twice!!!) and made some CUTE CUTE CUTE holiday gifts but cannot show you as you might be getting one :) It was such a great weekend and I just want to say thank you to my mom, you gave me a weekend I totally needed!! You are the best!!!

So I haven't had a chance to upload any new pics for awhile but thought I would share these scones that I made a few weekends ago...if you are a fan of Maple like I am then you will LOVE these!
Maple Scones

1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups oats
2 tsp baking powder
10 Tbsp cold butter
1/3 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 egg

Mix flour, oats, and baking powder together and cut in 10 Tbsp cold butter. Add remaining ingredients. Knead dough and pat down into an 1 inch thick circle. Cut into eight wedges and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 425. Once cooled, add maple frosting...yum yum!

Maple Frosting:
1 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp cream
1 c. powdered sugar
Whisk until smooth and frost scones...enjoy!!!

Thanks Monica for the recipe!
