Traditional Irish Scones

Scones Straight From Ireland…

Scones are an amazing treat if they are made correctly. Deliciousness, formed like a biscuit, shaped to perfection and topped with anything your precious heart desires. A sweet piece of goodness, which can be consumed for breakfast, brunch, a snack or even a dessert after dinner.

The best thing about scones are the versatility. You can have them without a topping, but still pair them with your coffee or tea and they are filling without being heavy. I just love a good scone, can you tell?

This particular recipe can be prepped in twenty minutes and cooked in thirty, so they definitely won’t take you all day. I always suggest getting one fresh out of the oven, because in my opinion that is when they taste the best.  I like to brush the tops of my scones with a little butter while they are still warm, making the flavor that much more rich and yummy.

Gemma is the publisher of this recipe and she is known as the Bold Baker, which is a fantastic. I am however, a horrible baker, so it helps that I can go to her site and to see step-by-step instructions, which can be viewed here.

The best way to cook this dish would be on a non-stick baking sheet, which would insure your scones do not get stuck or rip apart when you’re attempting to remove them.
