Does salmon say “Easter” to you?  It does to me–and I’m not even sure why.  But wouldn’t these cheery green and salmon-colored scones look nice on an Easter table?

Now in our family, Easter is an occasion where we always go out.  We attend a great buffet that’s always festive, and then come home for an Easter Egg hunt!

Of course, not cooking at home doesn’t mean I don’t want Easter food for at least a week or two before.  Isn’t half the joy of a holiday stretching out the fun!  So I made with some festive smoked salmon dill scones, cut out with an egg-shaped cookie cutter!

Now most people think of scones as sweet and biscuits as savory. But scones can truly go either way–isn’t that lucky on a holiday that already has its share of sweet!

      You know I did use one for an egg sandwich along with a little leftover smoked salmon! I sprayed my cookie cutter with Pam, set it in the frying pan and craked the egg inside of it so it fit the scone perfectly. I’m nothing if not obsessive 🙂
