I come from England, and haven't eaten scones since moving to America. I have looked for a while for a recipe and this one sounded the closest to how I remember my mother making them. I have t...

I needed an English dish to take to a multi-cultural food tasting party at my daughter's school. I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try. When I made the trial batch, my kids sa...
