    JNS's Note:

    A tried and true family scone recipe. The half milk and water mix helps to make the scones lighter in texture. These are great served with jam and cream or golden syrup. Another delicious way is to split the scones, butter while hot and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

      Delicious and easy scones! I added 3/4 cup of dried blueberries and a tsp of vanilla for a more decadent scone. I shaped the dough into a round and cut it into 8 triangular pieces. Delish! (Even if I did forget to brush the scones with the water/milk mixture!) Thanks for sharing this recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
