My grandmother made these for me when I was a little girl. Nobody in the family had the recipe, so I was really hoping this would be the same as hers. It was right on, and brought back so many wonderful memories. It was so easy to make and the scones turned out light and buttery. I didn't change anything in the recipe, it was perfect! Thank you for sharing.

I'm a terrible hand with bread, normally, but these were very easy to make, and turned out nice and light and buttery.
