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

These scones are AWESOME! Everybody loved them!!! I really got used to scones with tea when I lived in London, and now that I'm back in Brazil I can have them whenever I want.
