This order is for one dozen English-style scones--tender, sweet or savory depending on your scone option choice, and traditional as they come. Skip past a dozen generations of West Virginia granite in my blood and my roots are English. From the time I was a child, I was fascinated, nigh upon obsessed, with all things English, from medieval castles to kings to, yes, scones. The magical scones of all the English literature I inhaled through my teenage years and into my college degree in medieval British literature. Tea and scones. Try to find a figure in English literature that isn't at some point sitting down to tea and scones. With jam. And clotted cream!!!! I was so obsessed with consuming this delightful treat myself that it was an absolute must when I visited England ten years ago. I was not leaving without sitting down to some genuine English tea and scones, not to mention the clotted cream. If you browse the listing photos, you'll see the plate of tea and scones and jam and clotted cream I sat down to one day at a tea shop in the village of Cerne Abbas in Dorset.

What are scones? In America, we tend to think they're biscuits. They look similar to biscuits, but they are NOT biscuits, especially not Southern Biscuits made with soft southern flour and heavy on the butter for the flaky texture. They're closer to Northern Biscuits, made from hard northern flour with less butter and a more crumbly texture, due to the similarity in the type of wheat used in both scones and Northern Biscuits. But in the case of scones, while they also contain less butter than Southern Biscuits, they're still rich, that richness coming out of the egg in the batter, setting them apart from any traditional American biscuit at all.

The scones I make are just like the scones from the village in Cerne Abbas--rich, crumbly but soft, made with a hard northern flour, butter, baking powder, sugar, salt, milk, and egg. You can get 'em without going to Cerne Abbas--though I can't help you with the clotted cream, sorry! (I have a cow, so I have clotted cream, heh.) Traditionally, they are most commonly made plain or with currants. I have a number of sweet and savory out-of-the-box options you can choose, as well as the traditional currants. (Yes, currants are different than raisins. I use true black currants in my scones. Scroll through options to find Currants at the bottom.) Scones come in orders of 1 dozen, traditionally cut in triangles. Scones pictured are Old-Fashioned/plain.

Keeps well. To serve, heat for 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven to re-crisp the crust and warm the biscuits, or eat at room temperature, they're good either way. Serve with jam and clotted cream if you can get it, or depending on your sweet or savory choice, they're also good with a bowl of soup or chili!
