1/1 Photo of Walnut Raisin Scones
These scones are a good choice for breakfast, brunch or tea. They contain very little sugar because the sweetness comes from the raisins. Walnuts and lemon rind provide crunchiness and tang. These scones are wonderful served warm and spread with butter and honey or jam.
