Lovable Bites

Celebrating isn’t new; in fact, we carve out time to celebrate the smallest occasion like the inconsequential yet ever exciting, Taco Tuesday. Our calendar year is filled with celebrations, but after the excitement of the Holidays came to a close and we ushered in the new year with changes and resolutions, we find ourselves a little burnt out. By the end of January with the pillars of ‘to dos’ on our shoulders, we all crave something new to look forward to and celebrate. There is no better time to swing into our lovely month of February! So much to love about this month, no pun intended. At Pecan Deluxe, we feel every day is an incredible day to celebrate, but what ‘s more worthy of celebrating than love?

Our chefs love to push the envelope with unique, out-of-the-box flavors, but sometimes classic, familiar, and simple concepts can deliver just the same. We found this to be true with our precious Lovable Scones. Are scones new? Nope! Do people like to eat heart-shaped baked items? Of course they do! 

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, leaning back on the classic flavors of inclusions like Praline Almonds and Dried Fruit Oat Blend, combined with the simplicity of a baked good, we had all we need to celebrate. We love to showcase our passion for inclusions and candies, and hope, by providing this little lovable recipe, you may find yourself craving a new moment to celebrate. 

Enjoy this little Valentine’s Gift from PD, and may these sweet scones make your Valentine’s Day memorable.
