My "Starbucks Inspired" Vanilla Bean Scones

Hello Everyone!!!
I'm in love with Starbucks Vanilla Bean Scones..
Everytime I'm at Starbucks, I make it a point to buy their tasty scones, but they can be a little pricey. 
So I did my research on the YT and other blogs and found an easy recipe from The Pioneer Woman. Rea, does it again and knocks it out the park with this one.


Don't they look delicious and they taste even better.


The ingredients you'll need:
3 Cups of flour
2/3 Cups of Sugar
5 teaspoons of Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 Sticks of Butter Really Cold Almost Frozen (I used Margarine)
1 Egg (Room Temp)

GLAZE
5 Cups of Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup of Whole Milk
1/2 Tablespoon of Vanilla
Dash of Cinnamon


Preheat oven 350 degrees..
In a separate bowl combine 3/4 cup of Heavy Whipping Cream, 1 tablespoon of Vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon. Let set aside and marinate until needed.


Close View on the Vanilla Cream



In your mixer or bowl mix all dry ingredients.


Cut the cold butter up.


Add into the dry ingredients


Mix until it looks like corn meal.. 


Just like the bottom picture


Now add the room temp egg into the Vanilla Cream


Add to mixture


Quickly mix ingredients together.
Mix about 10 times then stop it.

It should looks like this.. 
Crumbs, flour and all


Place on counter and form into a ball.


Take rolling pin and roll out dough


You should get 24 scones out of the recipe.
I did!!


Put on cookie sheet and bake for 18 minutes or until just before they start to turn golden brown..



Take them out and let cool for about 15 mins..
Then glaze then and let them dry for about and hour.
They're so soft and chewy



I've made these 3 times and each time they come out better and better.



Please try these and let me know what you think about it..
Feel free to ask questions or comments below.

Until Next Time..
Bake It Chic....

Inspired Faux Leather Square Obi Belt

Hey Everyone!!! Today, I'm coming at you today with an accessory an Obi belt to be more specific. I've been obsessed with Loewe's Wide Obi Belt since I've seen it on one of my favorite Youtubers.  As some of you all already know, I love to recreate designer fashion but give a twist to it.
I love doing this at a fraction of the cost to tell the truth I actually did this for FREE..
Yes, FREE with faux black leather I purchased from Wal-Mart years ago.

I love how the belt cinches in your waist, making your silhouette even more dramatic.
Can you say Statement Piece?
It feels more like art to me, such sculpture statement to make.

It's not really a tutorial, more of a pictorial.
I actually used a old peplum pattern and cut the shape I wanted.
I can't give you dimensions, you'd have to make the shape to want..




When you get the shape you want, you cut the pattern.  Make sure you cut 2 and cut both on the fold.  After, cutting 2 ta…
