Fruit Mince and Rooibos Scones (Egg Free)


Feeling a little festive, I decided to start my Christmas baking early, with something simple, but still tastes full of Christmas!

While looking for ideas on how to make a fruit mince ice cream, which I plan to serve for dessert this Christmas, I stumbled across recipes for fruit mince scones! Why didn’t I think that that?!

After reading these two recipes on the blog sites below, I decided to adapt my own, easy peasy, scone recipe.

The results were YUM, however there is room for improvement, so I will be playing around with this until I get them perfect.

2 teaspoons castor sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2  cup (125 ml) of rooibos tea, cooled
