“This traditional recipe was brought to North America by my Great Grandmother Noon. We love it; it's rich and crumbly, the perfect accompaniment for afternoon tea. It's a real Scottish type of scone-- it's a bit sweet and dense. I suppose you could add raisins to it-- but Grandma Noon might come back and haunt you...”
