I'm a serious sucker for a scone. They are just the right amount of sweet, and as such can be unabashedly consumed at anytime of day. They're also versatile; if sweet isn't your thing, take a dive into a savory scone! 

I knew these would be the perfect compliment to Osmond. Who is Osmond you ask? He's Oliver's little bunny friend! Leslie, the owner-extraordinaire of the adorable shop Elk & Ivy, a friend and reader hand-crafted him lovingly as a 'welcome to the world' gift for our own bunny-head. Take a look at social media to see Osmond and Oliver together #cutenessoverload

Leslie handcrafts the most amazing dolls, and has now branched out to bunnies. You can also request a custom doll! She is seriously so insanely talented, and I can't encourage you enough to become a patron of her awesome shop. I mean seriously, just take a peek at what she creates! This not a sponsored post, I just think Leslie's dolls are so beautiful and her work inspiring. 

Osmond has a distinctively french flair to him with his dashing neckerchief, light gauzy pants, and charming polka-dotted ears. I keep him in the living room, for all to adore.

I think his favorite thing to eat just might be these carrot cake inspired scones; very euro-bunny indeed. Take a gander further down to see more photos of Osmond!

Yield: 8 scones

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups (10 oz) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup vegan granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup grated carrot, gently packed
  • 5 tbsp refined coconut oil, room-temperature
  • ¾ cup soy creamer

Cooking Directions

  1. Toast the pecans over medium heat in a small frying pan for about 5 minutes, until fragrant. Stir very often, ensuring they don’t burn. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. In a food processor, pulse together the flour through the shredded coconut. Pulse in the oil, ½ tbsp at a time, until it resembles coarse cornmeal with some larger pieces.
  3. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and stir in the carrot and pecans. Next, slowly stir in the creamer until just combined. The dough will be sticky.
  4. Preheat the oven to 450 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place another baking sheet beneath the first one (this keeps the bottoms from browning).
  5. Transfer the dough to a floured workspace and pat into an 8-inch round. Cut into 8 wedges and arrange on the baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through, until the tops are just golden brown. Allow to cool on a cooling rack for at least 10 minutes.
