Scones are often deemed the UK version of the US biscuit, but that isn’t entirely the case.  US biscuits tend to be lighter and flakier, while the traditional scone is a lot denser and usually leans toward the sweeter side of the tracks.

It’s easy to picture a jam and cream scone sitting alongside a nice cup of tea ready to be enjoyed in the afternoon. But, seriously, we all know that scones come in all shapes and sizes and can be souped up with all kinds of fun ingredients.
