Soft, light, and easy scones recipe. These treats are always welcome among guests. Offer a variety by serving half the scones with a savory topping such as butter and cheese and the other half with jam and cream. The sweet halves may also be garnished with fresh berries on top of the cream.
Scones are traditionally connected with England, Scotland, and Ireland but it is unclear which country invented these delightful teatime snacks. The recipe is almost the same as for the North American biscuit.
Scones are baked with wheat, barley, or oatmeal and baking powder and differ from teacakes made with yeast. Homemade scones are usually made using family recipes rather than books since many families consider theirs the best and pass on their recipes almost like family secrets.
