These remind me of the scones I had when I took my daughter's out to tea. They are the epitome of the traditional English scone. Crusty exterior with a light, fluffy inside. The perfect vehicle for your favorite jam, flavored butters or cream. This is my go to recipe for scones from now on. Perfection.

I had been looking for a scone recipe that would showcase my homemade jam. I picked these because there were no added fruits or flavors. These were so easy to make and so good! Perfect with jam, butter, and/or honey.
