If your preference in a scone is for something dense and dry and crumbly this recipe is not for you. I tried this recipe on the recommendation of The British Baker and I was not disappointed. These are moist and light. I wanted a savory scone to go with a meal I'm making so I left out the currants. Instead, I tossed in some finely chopped scallion greens, some freshly shredded Parmesan, and a good handful of toasted pecans. I got 8 scones from the recipe and baked on stoneware. The egg wash might not be necessary, but it adds a lovely shine and I think helps the browning process. These are lovely to look at and delicious as well. I can't wait to try them as written with something sweet like craisins and some orange zest. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
