BB-8 Orange Scones

BB-8 Orange Scones

I really love scones and thought it would be fun to make some in the shape of BB-8. I used a large cookie scoop to make the bottom circle and then a small cookie scoop for his head. I cut those and shaped them to fit on top and not lose the circular shape. I used his orange paint as inspiration for orange flavor.

I used a little glaze to accent his circles and designs. They are not perfect, but they are delicious and I think get the theme across.  I think these are a great way to start of the celebration for Star Wars Day… and May the 4th Be With You!
