Tasteful Tuesday – The best scones EVER

I hate recipes that are over complicated, use absurd ingredients or take too long to make.

These scones aren’t any of those things. In fact, they’re rather heavenly in every sense! Easy to make, super quick to bake and oh-so-delicious! This a recipe that I found, handwritten, in my mother’s recipe book (a treasure trove of reliable dishes) and have been using for a while now. The end result are a batch of scones that even the Queen would be proud to serve.
