Scones of all kinds are a fan favourite treat in my family. And I tend to think that they can be perfectly matched with tea and milk (or with butter on them!) These tropical pineapple scones that I will show you how to make are filled with sweet pineapple which makes for a pretty good scone to me!
That sweetness and freshness of pineapple just makes me want to up and move to Hawaii. Try these tasty pineapple scones this long weekend and enjoy these first bits of summer sunshine. If you are a pineapple fan like me, check out the Dole site for other yummy recipes to try.
