Banana Scones

Frankly, I never tried any scone before until Angeline let me try her Mini Mickey Scone. I like it very much. It was so nice to eat with jam. 

Luckily I tried making my own scones, otherwise I wouldn't know that it wasn't tough to make one. If I can make scones, everyone can. I hope no one objects what I said here. It doesn't need a lot of effort in whisking, kneading or beating. The whole baking process isn't  too time consuming though.
When I put my scones into oven, I whisked up butter and sugar to make cream to sandwish in between my scones later.
I actually moulded my scones into heart and star shapes to please my girls.
Forget to tell you, my scones were banana scones.
 I tasted one bite of my banana scone with cream. Yummy!
I dusted some icing sugar on  2 banana scones for each of my girls to bring to school as snack.

Also thanks to Lena from Frozen Wings, Joyce from Kitchen Flavours and Zoe from Bake For Happy Kids for this interesting Bake Along theme, Scones.
