Store Bought Almond Scones - Quick Review

With only a couple weeks to go before moving, I'm trying to use up all the food in the house, not buy more.  Of course I still have to keep stocking up on the basics and during a quick grocery trip this week I gave into a craving I got when I spied these Barista Baking Company brand scones. 

In the refrigerated section of the store, they were priced cheap enough (at about $2.50) to give them a try.  I love scones.  I love almond.  It would hopefully be a win/win situation.

Opening the package I found them to be a little slimy and shiny but that is to be expected with a store bought product.  The aroma of almond was heavenly and I could see slivers of almond in the dough.

They say to break the scones apart on the pre-scored lines which was simple to do but I did note that the scones are not uniform in size.  This actually makes them look more homemade in the end, and gives you a choice of a small scone or a larger size depending on what you wish so it's not a bad thing.

You simply place them on an ungreased baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.  The result?  Delicious.  You can tell they are not homemade scones and they quite like an almond cookie in many ways, but for 'quick and easy' and tasty, they went great with coffee and yes, I'd even buy them again.
