Scone Mix {Gourmet Gift Company}

I wanted to share another one of our delish gourmet baking mixes with you, our scone mix. This is the most scrumptious scone you will ever taste. Unlike most scones it is very moist and easy to make. The mix is a scone base mix and you can add anything to it you like. It is shown here with one of my favorites, blueberries, but you can add anything from cinnamon and raisins to chocolate chips. Everyone who tastes these keeps coming back for more. Like all of our mixes our scone mix is perfectly packaged for gift giving.
