Irish Fruit Scones

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Hanka

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.
