Tasty Wednesday and Dr. Seuss PSA

We treat ourselves to breakfast at Panera every Friday.
Our favorites a toasted Asiago Bagel and Orange Scone.

Recently Panera cut the size of their scones in half and raised the price almost a dollar more a scone!!😱  Needless to say, we have not had a scone since this happened.  Last week I went on line looking for an orange scone recipe.  Lo and behold I found one from a lady who had the same beef as we did about the decrease in size and increase in price.  She calls it Copycat Panera Orange Scone Recipe.  
I had most of the ingredients just needed some vanilla extract so I decided to give it a try.  Below is a photo of my very successful Copycat Panera Orange Scone Recipe.
She even tells one how to make them bigger or smaller with the same amount of ingredients.
I made 12, we tried two and they are delicious.  The orange glaze is better than Panera's. I froze 6 to be used over the next few weeks.  Unless we turn in to PIGGIES, I will probably freeze a few more.  Not counting prep time or 15 minutes of cooking at 425 degrees.  The price of 12 was
~.80 cents each as opposed to 2.99 each for 1/2 the size.
Win Win. πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜‰

I was told this link is acting up...I've attached the recipe at the end.

Did you hear about Dr. Seuss Day on March 2nd?

Yes it is true
no need to be blue
Dr. Seuss is coming to see you!

There are multiple hostesses and hosts





For smaller scones divide the dough into three 5" circles


  1. we come over to try that tasty scones, they smile and they scream our names ;O))

  2. I LOVE scones! Oddly enough, not so much the blueberry ones - but apple cinnamon or cinnamon chip? HEAVEN!

  3. Oh yes! Thanks for that easy peasy recipe. I will be making these for sure. I make biscotti every week but I can switch off with scones easily. I love Panera but they are getting rather "chintzy" with sizes and decidedly "non-chintzy" with prices!! Dr. Seuss Day is one of our favorites.

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  4. Good for you for outsmarting Panera. Your scones look delicious!

  5. I have never had a scone, and this is the first I have seen. I can't eat these but if I could I would. these prices are why I have never bought a cup of Starbucks and never will. my coffee is 11 cents a cup and I love it.. why go for the expensive stuff. of course at home we don't have to pay rent, staff, utilizes and insurance. the rest of the 80 cent cost is all of that.. there I go on my practical self soap box. also cheapest person on the planet.

  6. Yea. Someone is bound to come up with something is what I always say. Glad she had a good recipe. Too many places are charging more for less product

    Miss C... that recipe link is coming up red-flagged with all sorts of Google warnings - it may just be from my side, but even copying and pasting the URL brought up 'HERE BE DRAGONS' stuff. Would it be a pain to ask you to type out and email me that recipe - cuz I surely want to try it!!! My Seuss post is up and ready for the off! YAM xx

  8. Those scones sure sound good but cutting the size and raising the price sure doesn't!

  9. She had better do something this year for Dr Seuss!! All this moving is all fine and dandy, but we want some fun as well!

  10. Your scones look delish. I noticed the changes in Panera's scones too and don't really like what they've done. Also they stopped making my favorite carrot cake muffin quite a while ago. Your scones look very yummy.

  11. I put one on my sidebar. Now I need to do a post. I'll do that soon.

    Have a fabulous day, Cecilia. Big hug. ♥

  12. Mom had a blueberry scone at Panera yesterday and said it was very good, even a bit tastier than the old version. She wants to try making those orange scones. Maybe next week when the kids are on break AGAIN!!!

  13. We went to our Panera on Monday for lunch. Dad thought his sandwich was smaller as was the bread side. Mom tried a pasta dish and it was not worth the $8.69 they charged. disappointing as that has been a favorite place to go

  14. OMD...those look delish C!! Filing the recipe for future use!!

  15. I want a scone!!!! Yours look so good! I am hanging onto the recipe for future scones!

  16. Those scones look yummy!! We love Dr Seuss day!

  17. They look yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I love Dr. Seuss day! His museum is only 30 minutes away.XO

  18. those scones look DELICIOUS and that is exactly why I won't make them. I WILL be a "piggie" and will eat each and every one of them! We usually do the same Dr.Seuss post every year (sometimes we tweak it a bit).....Dakota doesn't usually post for Dr.Seuss day but Cody always does!

  19. So many products try this trick. Glad you weren't fooled!

  20. Can you believes that? So not right! They are gonna lose a lot of customers doing that. I would hope they will rethink this. BUTTS, sounds like you gots them beat anyhu! Those look delish! Ma would eats them all up, cause she is a piggie. heheheee

  21. I'm afraid if I made those scones we would never stop eating them with lots of butter! They look delicious!

  22. Wow! You did an excellent job on your orange scones. We have never been to Panera's and now that we are eating Keto, I guess we are out of luck. LOL!

  23. The scones look delicious. I made an apple torte with an extra egg added which caused it to be sort of custardy. Delicious!

  24. I discovered your blog site on google and check a few of your early posts. Continue to keep up the very good operate. I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Seeking forward to reading more from you later on!…
