TWD: Toasted Almond Apricot Mango Scones



This week's recipe was chosen by Mike of Living Out West Blog. His blog will have the recipe for today!



I couldn't help but add some yummy diced dried apricots and dried mangoes that I had on hand. The sweet, plump fruit really accentuated the nutty flavor and tender texture of these scones. They were very much enjoyed around here!

Tia - you always make the greatest "combos".... they look wonderful! Almonds pair so nicely with other fruits - I should try that next time! Thanks so much for baking along with me this wee!
