Paradise and Pennant Candied Fruit

Fruitcake Scones

These scones are unlike the traditional ones – no dry or tough texture here! They boast a nearly bread-like consistency, generously filled with a mix of candied cherries, candied pineapple, candied lemon peel, and candied orange peel in each delightful bite. What sets them apart is the almond extract, adding an explosive almond flavor to both the scone and the icing! And to top it off, they’re adorned with Rainbow Sprinkles.
