I’d really like to get a real English scone recipe. I’ve been to England a couple times, and the scones they make there are fabulous. Not anything like most of the ones you get in the U.S. Which are dense and hard by comparison. The scones I had in England were really light, sort of soft in the inside, but crusty on the outside.
I’d asked the lady who made them how she did it. She’d given me the recipe – but that was years ago and I’ve lost it. She said the trick to keeping them soft and nice was to work the dough quickly. I’d really like to try making my own REAL scones.
I read this web site had visitors from all over the world, so I’m hoping someone from England will see this and will be able to share a recipe for real English scones. (I know it may not be so-called the “healthiest” – but then again, scones are like comfort food. So I guess that’s healthy too in a way!)
Also – if you have any tips for making them turn out well, I’d sure appreciate that too! Thanks in advance!
