      These scones have a really lovely delicate flavor. They could be dressed up with all kinds of additional condiments which would enhance them even more. I was wishing I had some Lemon Curd to put on them. MADE FOR SPRING PAC 2010.

      A wonderful light scone, though I did have to add a little more flour after adding the milk egg and the dough was a little tacky. Baked for 10 minutes at 200C fan forced oven and they were a beautiful golden brown and made a wonderful morning tea with a little strawberry jam and cream and a cuppa. Thank you C-J from the UK, made for PAC.
