Here in the Northeast fall is an absolutely beautiful time of year here, with a vast array of stunning colors taking over the landscape. Having long forgotten our winter blues, the hot summer months have us craving cooler temps with giddy excitement about comfy sweaters, hot tea and warm pastries.
After enjoying Darling Clementines® in salads, smoothies and all by themselves during those hotter months, we love to bring that citrus flavor into the fall with piping hot baked goods. Plus it gives us a chance to incorporate clementine zest into recipes for that added punch of flavor.
And you know what goes good with Clementines???
Wild Wild Whisk has the right idea with these delectable Clementine Crème Scones topped with…you guessed it – a zesty Clementine Glaze. Yum! Does it get any better than this?
The couple behind The Café Sucre Farine may have actually one-upped the scones with their Brown Sugar Banana-Clementine Muffins. I mean – what about that name doesn’t say “I’m worth climbing out of bed for”??? With a healthy dose of clementine zest AND clementine juice, these muffins sound perfect to cure our clementine craving and kick the morning into high gear!
How about you? What are your family’s favorite baked pastries during the fall?
