Traditional Scones

Similar treats are known as “biscuits” in the US, where everything is upside down, and people do not worship the Queen.

Scones can be sweet or savoury and are a simple, yet impressive treat for guests. These scones are light, fluffy and positively poetry-inducing. 

To reduce the cost and improve the healthiness of these I’ve swapped margarine for oil and soy milk for water. At the bottom of this recipe you’ll find suggestions on how to modify this recipe to your requirements.
