We've been making these scones for almost 20 years, since the recipe first came out, printed on the inside of the butter carton. It became my son's specialty, and he still makes them at age 36. Always a hit at family holiday gatherings!

My daughter's favorite!! I like to add some nuts, like hazelnuts and maybe a drizzle of chocolate on top.

I've made these scones several times, and they are always a hit. Today a young high school student,male had them and asked me for the recipe so that he can make them himself. That's high praise.....
