There is an art to scone making.

I have never been one to boast about my scone making because I know I am no expert. I have difficulty making a decent scone and so they are not made very often.sconesYesterday, Lorna of Lorna’s Tearoom Delights blogged about having tried a different scone every day while she was on holiday. She visited a different tearoom each day. The pictures had me salivating and I thought I would give scone making another go.

The recipe I chose was one I haven’t tried before and it came from this cookbook.

cookbookThe author assures us on the recipe page that it will produce magnificent scones.

recipe My younger sister had a girl called Aggie in her class in primary school, perhaps that was a good omen for the scone making! The recipe can be enlarged if you click on the picture.

I made the scones and can attest to the tastiness of them although I expected them to be higher rather than expanding width ways. Perhaps if I had packed them close together on a smaller tray that would have happened. I will try again another time.

Luckily we just happened to have some double cream in the fridge and some home made jam!

  1. We tried no sugar for a day or two, no way that was going to happen. Too much baking going on in this house. I must try those Aggie’s scones.
    Yes, Aggie gets a mention in our conversation from time to time. Didn’t her brothers do some scrumping from our place?
