This recipe is from the 'Highland Fling' cookbook. My grandmother ordered 4 cookbooks from Scotland for herself, my mother & my aunts. It makes a delicious, fluffy scone & we've had tons of requests for the recipe over the years. I have given the exact steps as written, but added our modifications. This makes a sweet scone--perfect for double Devonshire cream & some jam.

YUMMY!!!!!!! I followed the directions exactly. BUT before I started, I put about a cup to a cup and a half of strawberries in a bowl with some sugar on top. I let them sit and "weep" until we were ready for dessert (an hour or 2). After the scones were ready, I spooned strawberries on top, and then poured the "juice" over that. This is just a little taste of heaven :) I also tasted the scones by themselves and they are delicious. There's just a hint of sweet. TY for the recipe!
