If you would be interested I would be happy to send you my grandmother's
scone receipes. She was a fabulous cook . These receipes would date
around 1905-1910 when she was a newlywed. There is a basic receipe for
plain scones (usually served with strawberry jam and cream or hot with
lashings of butter and jam) - then you add other ingredients to the
basic receipe for savory cheese scones or sweet date scones or sultana
Anyway if you are interested please let me know - they are incredibly
easy to make.
