    The glaze is also made with the drink and is so, so good on top of the warm scones. The interesting addition of mangoes and the sweet tropical glaze made these the most popular in our scone tasting marathon. They were the first to go. I adore your scone recipes!  Have you ever tried making banana scones?  I would love to see a banana scone recipe from you!  I ve found banana scone recipes on Pinterest, but I am afraid to try them because they could never compare with your scone recipes.
