The scone is a basic component of the cream tea or Devonshire tea. English scones are small and round and contain less sugar than American versions. They should be served open faced with butter, jam/lemon curd and/or clotted cream.
Scones are a type of rich, slightly savoury pastry which is often served at breakfast or tea, especially in Britain. Traditional English scones slightly resemble American biscuits, as both use a flaky, dense pastry, but scones tend to be a bit sweeter, and also incorporate ingredients like dried fruit or cheese and onion to give a savoury option. Delicious when eaten warm. The term “scone” in reference to a pastry has been in use in Scotland since 1513, and is probably related to the Dutch word for bread.Tina’s Traditional Old English Scones come in 4 varieties, Savory Cheese & Onion Scones, Fruit Scones( dried raisins), Cranberry Scones, Fresh Blueberry Scones.
