These scones were quick and easy to make,plus they were REALLY tastey! We will deffinitely be making these again. Another review for these scones mentioned basting them with milk and sprikling them with sugar. I tried it and the scones came out of the oven with a really yummy, sweet crust on top! Can't wait to try some other variations!
