    Hanka's Note:

    Light moist and so easy to make.This recipe was given to me by Irish chef. These are truly best scones I ever had. Great with butter, jam or creme-fresh. They also freeze well.

      Finally a recipe close to the scones my DH and I had in Ireland this past summer! I must note that one should pay particular attention to step 8 for best rising. I kneaded just a tad too much on my first batch. One really wants the dough to JUST come together and roll very lightly. Thank you SO much for posting this receipe. It's a keeper.

      I will leave only a comment and not star rating, because I obviously made errors in converting some of the key ingredients. There were too many raisins, and the dough was quite dry and fell apart in our hands. I obviously didn't use enough butter, but had too many raisins. I'll try again though, as I think it'll be a great recipe if I can get the conversions correct. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Hanka.
