Soup weather has only just begun, and I've already made multiple batches of chili and soups. It's like there was some soup-crazed obsession just building in me all summer long and now that it's been unleashed I don't know how to stop it (not that I'd even try).
What I've noticed is that bowls of delicious homemade soup are practically begging to be served with crispy-on-the-outside fluffy-on-the-inside scones studded with cream cheese and candied jalapenos.. and who am I to ignore their wishes?
We've been working our way through the stash of candied jalapenos and I had looong been debating baking some of them into a batch of scones. I was hesitant because the sweet and spicy slices are perfectly delicious on plain scones with a smear of cream cheese, what if folding them into the batter muted their flavor and wasted what remains of our jars?
