These delicate scones are the perfect lightly sweet treat to serve with coffee or tea at any holiday get-together. It's a simple bread since, like biscuits, it doesn't require much kneading and there's no need to let the dough rise.

At what point in the recipe would you make them into mini drop scones? Before or after kneadine?

My husband made these yesterday for Mother's Day and everyone loved them. I just finished making another batch. I made them into mini drop scones for after school snacks.
