    I don't know how to convert weights into measures. Has anyone done this successfully?

    Absolutely foolproof, and more importantly DELICIOUS! Lovely with some jam and whipped cream. Also a cuppa Barry’s tea. Must be Barry’s TEA!!!!

    Finally a recipe close to the scones my DH and I had in Ireland this past summer! I must note that one should pay particular attention to step 8 for best rising. I kneaded just a tad too much on my first batch. One really wants the dough to JUST come together and roll very lightly. Thank you SO much for posting this receipe. It's a keeper.

    You have a way to get people not interested in cooking also to watch your videos till the very end, you should add this on Khal soon because you deserve way more love than what you are currently getting

    A very basic question from a complete novis, what flour do you use

    Great! A scone loving Irish friend just called the result 'perfect' and I agree with her. I will use this recipe from now on :-)
