I have made these scones several times and they always come out great! Definitely a favorite in our family! I usually make them without the currants.

Soft, delicious. I had some cinnamon sugar in a shaker and sprinkled the scones before baking and think it added a bit to final taste with the powdered sugar topping. Perfect for the autumn season.
