Whether it's tea time or dinner time, these scone recipes are perfect for any occassion.

Our first recipe is Toasted Almond and Cherry Scones.

These scones come together in less than 30 minutes and are best served warm from the oven. Substitute an equal amount of chopped pistachios or walnuts for the almonds, if you prefer.

Make a quick bread even quicker with the addition of a convenience product. Low-fat baking mix shortcuts the process because the flour, salt, and baking soda are already added in the proper ratios—allowing you to be a baking rock star, in less time, with less fuss.

Semisweet mini chocolate chips complement the currants beautifully.

Scones, like biscuits, are most tender when handled minimally. So have your ingredients ready, and use a soft touch when mixing and patting the dough.

Canned pumpkin puree makes these scones moist and tender, and it imbues them with the antioxidant beta-carotene. Pumpkinseed kernels add nutty crunch. Serve with a hearty vegetable soup or a meaty stew.

Cornmeal, Jalapeño, and Fresh Corn Scones

Once baked, jalapeño peppers add relatively mild heat. If you want to tame it even further, reduce the amount of pepper or omit it. Or substitute serrano chiles for a spicier version.

Blueberry-Pecan Scones

Make these scones a day or two ahead, and store in an airtight container. Resist the temptation to knead the dough; doing so would break apart the tender blueberries. Leftover scones are nice with tea later in the day.
