My daughter’s last day of school was yesterday. Does anyone else spend weeks trying to come up with the perfect teacher gift, and then stress than they won’t like it anyways? No, just me? Oh well. I need to be less neurotic about silly things like this. I really don’t like just giving gift cards because it seems so impersonal, although I have certainly resorted to it on occasion, and I know they’re appreciated. But my need to make things from scratch certainly translates into teacher gifts.
This year I finally settled on a jar of homemade raspberry jam (which is rather hard to part with I must admit!) and some mini vanilla scones. I love jam and scones so hopefully the teachers feel the same way and it’s not a lame gift!!
These scones were quite quick and easy and they tasted great. I did have to taste test of course! Although my first batch I rolled them a bit thin, so make sure not to roll them out too thin. They still tasted good, but were a little less flaky and tender than the thicker ones. And I felt the need to drizzle chocolate over the vanilla glaze, because really? Chocolate makes everything better. We all know this.
