While looking for a delicious treat this month, we uncovered this amazing recipe by Marta Potoczek who writes for Lazysundaycooking.com.
Scones are commonly associated with England, Scotland and Ireland but nobody’s really sure which country ‘invented’ them. We’re just glad they came into existence!
