Author Notes: Scones are a traditional Scottish bread which are slightly sweet, and are served with tea widely around the world. For these scones, it is easy to make delicious variations by adding fruit to the batter. Scones are wonderful served with apple butter and a hot cup of tea. —Primal Palate
