I was so taken w/Chef floWer's photo of this recipe & decided to serve it as part of a seafood starter plate. Everyone thot the scones were fantastic, but was a a bit less enthused about their topping as a pers pref. It seemed a little bitter & somewhat thin to me. I'm sure I can correct this by either using cream cheese or a combo of cream cheese + sour cream. This makes for an elegant presentation & definitely will be repeated. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us.

Yum! This recipe was so easy to make and perfect for our special for afternoon tea today. The combination of the scones, topping and smoked salmon was excellent. These would also be perfect to be served as an appetizer at a finger food party, you could easily prepared everything before hand. Thank you Chef Potts
