Authentic Old English Scones Recipe [1]This is without a doubt the best English scone recipe ever. I promised our listeners at Celtic Storytellers and Friends on Trent Radio, that I would post the recipe here.

You’ll see the original recipe with our ‘healtherizing’ changes below. 

I hope you enjoy this recipe and make it a part of your ‘Do It Yourself” cookbook.
