This is a really tasty recipe with the hazelnuts and coffee. My DH just loves it. Can't keep enough of them around! Great for breakfast, snacks, having with coffee, and packing in lunches! :)

I just finished baking these scones and they are great! I didn't have hazelnuts but used pecans instead. Its quick & easy to make with ingredients you usually have in the house.
