Yum! I'm definitely making scones. When I was a kid, we made what my mom called "scones", which I was shocked to find out as an adult was actually known to the rest of the world as "fried dough with powdered sugar on it". I have no idea why we called them scones. It's like calling drop biscuits "glazed donuts".
Thanks for the recipe!
