Cherry Pie Scones  - The Bitter Side of Sweet


I was touched first by it with my grandmother, Mamaw as we called her. I don’t have a lot of memories because she lived 14 hours away from us. I just remember visiting one time and seeing her look sick and with a bandana on her head. I was young and naive to really understand what was going on.

My Mamaw seemed to get better but then she had her cancer come back in a different part of her body. I remember being in the hospital room when she passed. I was there with my mom and uncles. I remember just standing there watching my mom hold her hand as she passed.

It was a lasting moment that I will never forget.

I talked to my mom about this day. That I was going to do a post. I asked what was my Mamaw was famous for making when it came to desserts. She said she liked to make angel food cake and pies!

I attempted my hand once at angel food cake and thought maybe I should make something different.

I thought about pie but I really wanted something that combined what my Mamaw would of liked with my own style.

So I made Cherry Pie Scones.
