Recipe Notes

The key to gorgeous scones is not to over work the dough… don’t over kneed to bring together, and if you roll out, not too thing else they will not rise.

Enjoy warm with some cherry jam and fresh cream… or else some nice Kerrygold butter!

You can store in a sealed container or in the fridge for a few days, just give them 20 secs to warm through in the microwave.
