How to Make Naturally Green Scones for St Paddy's Day



Four years ago, when I found out that Chloe's due date was St. Patrick's Day I was devastated. I simply couldn't imagine my little girl's birthday falling on the day of green beer for the rest of her life. Luckily the stars aligned and Chloe didn't arrive for another week, but thus began my obsession with with dye-free St. Patrick's Day recipes.

Sure it's easy to add a few drops of green food coloring to a recipe (which I don't recommend), but why not make one of the vibrant, naturally green recipes I've been posting here over the past few days? I'm so excited about the idea of no-dye green recipes, in fact, I've even dedicated a page to them on Pinterest.

These Spinach Cheddar Chive Scones are not only a perfect treat for the 15th, they're a savory snack for any time and this video will show you how to make them!

    I made these for friends on St. Patrick’s day for brunch. They were SO good. My friend thought I was so gourmet but they were really easy. I was worried when the dough looked so dry and flaky but that’s what made them so good, after they came out of the oven. They were dense but flaky. SO TASTY!

      It a water spout for filling large pots, like for pasta! It’s easier than filling at the sink and lugging it over to the stove!
