  1. I have always loved homemade scones but I have always been intimidated to make them myself. I made these twice this week and they were so easy and SO good!! My 3 year old loved helping me too! They are our new favorite!

  2. These are delicious! We do white chocolate and cranberry. I roll them a bit thinner as my husband doesn’t like them too thick, and they’re yummy!! They also freeze well

  3. Absolutely love these and such an easy recipe. I’ve made them multiple times and they always turn out great. Perfect with a cup of coffee.

  4. Another of my favourite recipes from Kate. I make scones every week now and this recipe is delicious and easily adaptable to whatever ingredients I have on hand to add.

  5. Super yummy and easy recipe! I’ve tried it with so many different variations and they always turn out delicious !
