Scones aren’t something I make often because I am always the one who gets stuck making them at work. I remember loving them when I was younger and even now there is nothing better then a warm scone straight from the oven with jam and freshly whipped soft airy cream.
Despite the fact I’m usually pretty sconed out, I try to share things I loved when I was growing up, with my son. He’s more a skip the jam person and just have cream and scone, but so long as I can share my memories with him I’m pretty content.
I’ve opted to use buttermilk because I love the tender crumb that buttermilk brings to baked goods, but if you don’t have it you can use normal milk or make faux buttermilk by adding half a tablespoon of lemon juice/lime juice or white vinegar to normal milk, mix it and let it sit for 5 minutes.
