Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I slightly altered a recipe from a dear friend and this has become a family favorite. The scones are great fresh, they freeze well, and can easily be reheated and enjoyed warm. I usually double the recipe when I make them and then have some for the freezer for whatever need might come up!
