Old Fashioned Scones Recipe
When I was about 12, I decided that every woman needed to know how to bake. Don’t ask me why this thought entered my head. Perhaps I was inspired by Nancy Drew’s Hannah, but more than likely I read about scones in some romance novel. Whatever the reason, I set out to learn how to bake scones from scratch.
Throughout my preteen years, I refined and reworked a recipe I’d found in a very old book my great-grandmother had owned. Over time, I perfected the art of making scones. Even though I don’t make them often any more, the process is ingrained in me and is almost muscle memory at this point.
These scones are absolutely perfect if you’re having a few friends over and want a small but substantial treat to feed them. They go perfect with sweet wine and cheese.
Note that most people make scones more like a biscuit, but I prefer them to be very very small. Use a shooter glass or small round cookie cutter to cut these out and they’ll be the size I make. You can also try to make them larger, but you may need to adjust cooking time.
