Recently, my hubby became a huge fan of scones. He started buying some scones from a bakery store and while they were not bad at all (obviously), I decided I could do better AND healthier. 😉 Now, I have never made scones before but as you might have guessed from reading my other posts, I am never one to shy away from a challenge. For a first attempt, they came out quite delicious if I do say so myself.
