Delicious Tea Scones

"These are great scones for company, they're really easy and quick to pull together and get eaten in a flash because they are SO good. They are best served hot with jam or marmalade on top. I found this recipe on the web, made a few changes, and have been using it ever since!"

  2. These are very good and have a very nice crumb. I will make these again and I'm anxious to try them with added candied ginger or dried cranberries, perhaps. Thanks for posting this!


I live on the west coast of Canada and love it here. I am an avid baker and cook, nature-lover, photographer-by-hobby, reader, runner.. yes, life is good. I love cooking pizza from scratch, concocting flavored sorbets, and baking cookies and cake. I am sort-of-known for my cake-baking skills: I've made them for my friends' surprise birthday parties, and for family members. I also made an E=MC2 shaped chocolate cake for physics class once. I love baking a cake based on the person's personality- cheese cake, coconut-peach cake, fruit and chocolate cake... it's fun. Anyway, that's a bit about me.
