“This has been one of my favorite scone recipes for a long time, and I make these quite often. They are quite easy to mak, and taste so wonderful when eaten about 5 minutes out of the oven, slathered with butter. (note: any leftovers, But I doubt if you will have any, can be frozen, just split and toast!)”
9-10 scones
