1/1 Photo of Brown Sugar Scones
A recipe I found in my catalogue from King Arthur Flour. The recipes states "This traditional British scone is an ideal tea-time treat when served with clotted cream or butter and jam. It states to use their White Whole Wheat Flour, but I just use All purpose flour. I made the walnuts and raisins optional, depending on your families tastes.
