I hid a ripe mango from my son.
Yes, sometimes I have to be sneaky,
you see if he saw the mango, he would have eaten it.
I know him well.
He’s not as tall as me so I get to hide things easily on him, I’m sure that will change in a few short years.
I hid the mango so I could make these scones, I’m so glad I did. So is he.
He likes to eat the mango just like this, I really preferred it in the scones.

The fresh mango does make these sticky, but a little extra flour really helped to roll these out nicely.
Use ice cold butter for scones, it allows the scones to bake up extra fluffy!
I’m not going to say just how many of these I ate while I waited for the rest to cool so they could be iced.
If you have extra icing you can make these
