    Auntie Mags's Note:

    This traditional recipe was brought to North America by my Great Grandmother Noon. We love it; it's rich and crumbly, the perfect accompaniment for afternoon tea. It's a real Scottish type of scone-- it's a bit sweet and dense. I suppose you could add raisins to it-- but Grandma Noon might come back and haunt you...

      I've been searching for scones like my Scottish granny used to make. These weren't even close. I followed the directions exactly, but thought these were heavy and not particularly good tasting. Sorry.

      these were superb. Used skim milk and splenda brown sugar blend and just loved them.

      The flavor in these scones is marvelous. I made a 1/2 recipe and to make them even more diabetic friendly I replaced 1/2 a cup of white flour with whole wheat. I used 1/8 cup of Splenda brown sugar and skim milk. They turned out wonderfully. I can't say that they were especially dense even with the whole wheat addition, in fact they rose very well. I added 1/2 a tsp of Penzey's Cake Spice just because I thought it would go very nicely with the brown sugar, it did! In short, throughly wonderful scones that would accept dried fruit and/or nuts very well if one wanted to add them. Thank you Auntie Mags for a keeper scone recipe.
