RECIPE: Quick And Easy Fresh Scones For Breakfast

My Family's Scone Recipe

My dad used to wake up early on weekends and make us all muffins or scones. Actually, he still does. When I head home for a visit, it’s usually the smell of something warm from the oven that wakes me up.

A few years ago, I had my grandmother share her recipe secrets with me. I put them in a book and gave it to family members for Christmas in 2007. I’m so glad I did. She passed away in 2010 and now, whenever I miss her, I can make her cherry cake, her chocolate chip cookies, her scones.

This morning, I picked up on my dad’s habit and baked for my family. Of course, I made my grandmother’s scones for breakfast. The recipe is simple and classic.
