With my last Azure Standard order we got 20# of pears.  We love pears as much as the next person, but pears tend to go downhill pretty fast.  In an effort to use them quickly, I started looking for various recipes with pears.  In this quest I decided that I wanted to attempt a pear scone.

We’re still fairly new to eating scones, but I’m loving their ease and versatility.  My searches came up empty {atleast for out taste buds, there were so weird choices!} so I set out to create one.

Considering I made 3 batches in 4 days and all of them disappeared, I think it’s pretty safe to say that these were a success!
