Another cookbook I like is Carol Walter's Great Coffee Cakes, Sticky Buns, Muffins, & More. I've made her "Country Cherry Honey Scones" on several occasions and as she says, "If you want to make a pretty scone, this is the recipe to choose." I agree!
My husband, Chuck, and I were in Edinborough, Scotland in 1993, and we had some great scones one morning from a local bakery. They were filled with currants and literally melted in our mouths. I brought several back to our hotel room to have later while Chuck went to a soccer game to watch Manchester United. I savored the scones and watched British soap operas. Quite the day.
