I am ecstatic. I took one bite of my scone at morning tea time yesterday and enthusiastically declared "I won!" The others at the table looked at me strangely so I had to explain my ongoing scone dilemma and the fact that I had overcome it. My scone was still tender and delicious when it was cold the next day. By the end of Monday evening the 8 scones I'd had left had been devoured. Yes indeed - I WON!
The recipe I posted the other day is a winner, a keeper and the solution to a scone-challenged cook's kitchen woes. Try it out - you won't be sorry.
