Scones are sooo good!! So dang good!! Some of you may be wondering where the fried golden pillows of goodness are. These are not that kind of a scone. These are English Tea Scones to be exact. I think you’re suppose to eat them topped with clotted cream and lemon curd, and serve them with your afternoon tea. I don’t drink tea. I”ll admit I tasted it once on accident and it was downright nasty. And I don’t think clotted cream sounds very lovely either. So I’ll eat mine straight up with frosting. The frosting thing is Hollie’s fault. She started doing that to orange rolls and scones, and now I can’t stop. It makes everything taste better. Cinnamon chips make them delightful too, but I had to steal those. Bakery robbery is a capital crime at my house. It’s right up there with swearing. Don’t tell James I stole a baggie of them. He keeps wondering why his ingredient percentage is a little on the high side at the bakery. It was so worth it though:)
We make Scones at the bakery and to this day, almost 15 years later, we still get people asking, “What are those cookie things with the fruit in them?” Scones people. Scones! I can’t even remember the first time I ate an English Tea scone, but I’ve been smitten for years. Now that summer is finally here, or at least the calendar says so, I think I’ll eat scones every day. They make me happy, and I’m sure it will make “Squirtly and Dortley” a bit bigger, so maybe I’ll only eat them on holidays. I can’t wait until Father’s Day!!
They are so good!!!
