Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I noted this as a "Yankee" recipe, because, as you may remember, there were only three nationalities in Milford: Italian, Irish and Yankee! ( I think the scones were English, but what do I know?!) Anyway, Margaret Morcone used to bake these for her favorite patients and then for her favorite nieces and nephews, which is how we got to know them.
