Or simply munched in a stolen moment of solitude, fresh out of the oven.

Tips for making Scones, savoury or sweet
So people are often scared of making scones? This I don’t really get?
They are so Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy 🙂
But there a a few tips:
- Use very cold butter
- Do not overwork – meaning just pull the dough together
- Roll once – again don’t overwork
- Brush only the tops with milk (not the sides)
- And for these make sure you use some good strong Cheese
So lastly how do you pronounce scone?
Oh so many views!
There are two possible pronunciations of the word scone:
the first rhymes with gone and the second rhymes with tone.
In US English the pronunciation rhyming with tone is more common.
In British English the two pronunciations traditionally have different regional and class associations, with the first pronunciation associated with the north of England and the northern working class, while the second is associated with the south and the middle class….
So which are you? 🙂
So if you love sweet scones you may also lovely savoury ones?
My Cheese & Bacon Scones are so good – so good in fact you can eat them for breakfast!
Why not have a try?
Look at them!!
