Mini Vanilla Bean Scones

Unemployment means you spend a lot of time at coffee shops, alternately searching for jobs on your computer and refreshing Craigslist’s missed connections, hoping someone spotted you and wants to whisk you away to Argentina and/or give you a big bag of money.

I know I’m supposed to choose cool indie coffee shops where I can rub shoulders with artsy farts writing screenplays and drink crunchy eco-friendly coffee, but sometimes it’s nice to just relax and enjoy the big ole’ coffee chains. 

I’ve favored Caribou because of their big cushy leather chairs and the fact that I sort of feel like I’m in Minnesota. However, Starbucks has been blown to the top of the running because of these:

Not only are they completely adorable, they’re crazy tasty.  Teeny tiny scones with little specks of vanilla bean and lightly frosted with melt-in-your-mouth icing. With a steamy americano with lots of milk, it doesn’t get any better… (unless you’re employed and eating these at your desk… THAT would be better.)
