Scones Recipes

Scones can be sweet, savory, filled with clotted cream and jam, or just plain!
This breakfast dish is a staple in every Englishman’s diet and is enjoyed at
breakfast or even at afternoon tea. Many people would tell you how a proper
scone would taste like, but it all depends on the person’s taste – although, a
proper scone should be hard on the outside, and crumbly on the inside, which
makes it perfect to enjoy with spreads.
Sweet scones are usually enjoyed by the British, but most Scots like their scones
on the savory side which are served with fresh dill and cheese.
You can have scones any way you like, but make sure that you have it with
coffee or tea!
