Coconut Scones with Coconut Nutella Glaze

IMG_0129

I hadn’t baked any treats since I moved into my new house. The first delicious treat that came from my kitchen (and it’s MINE because I bought a house!) are these scones. I had intended to follow the recipe I had found to the tee – but then as I pulled them out of the oven and saw my jar of Nutella peaking out of the cabinet, I just knew there was a way to include the deliciousness of the hazelnut chocolate spread into these scones.

I’ve been eating these for breakfast all week and they somehow still remain perfectly moist (not too dry, but the very right texture for scones.)
