I remember Mom making these whenever we would go camping. They are so light and flaky, and much easier than trying to make oatmeal over a camp fire.

Thank you for sharing this scone recipe! They were simple to make with ingredients I always have on hand. I added about a teaspoon or so of cinnamon and a bit more sugar as per my family's tastes. I pressed the dough into two six inch circles and cut each into six. I sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar before baking for decorative purposes. What a wonderful recipe that is now in my 'keeper' file. Thanks again!
