I remember the first time I had a scone. I didn’t know what the heck it was. A parent brought in chocolate chip scones for us while we were working in the babysitting room, and I was hooked. I have loved scones ever since. Since then I have tried lots of different flavors and I am still finding ones that I love. While chocolate chip scones will always be my favorite, I have fallen in love with chai tea mini scones. The size is perfect for a treat and chai tea is one of my favorites. This scone recipe has as become a staple in the house. So much so when friends come to visit, one of the first things they look for is one of the scones. The disappointment when I don’t have them…
