Copycat Starbucks Vanilla Bean Scones

Copycat Starbucks Vanilla Bean Scones
I promise I won’t post a scone recipe every day this week.  Or will I?  I have always loved scones since the first cinnamon chip scone came out at Starbucks.  Did you know their scones average to be 22 points??  That would be a whole day of food on the Weight Watchers plan.  While I thought yesterday’s oatmeal crunch apple scones were amazeballs, Hannah and...
