When I came to America from England in 1967, I made sure to bring along my favorite recipe for scones. Served warm with butter, they're perfect for breakfast.

"These scones were delicious! The batter was a tad sticky at first, but when rolled out with a mix of flour and sugar, it turned out perfect. One thing though: watch your oven temp extremely because they may burn. GREAT RECIPE"
