When I am stressed I eat. I am sure that is true for most people. And what do I crave the most (besides delicious milk chocolate)……bread. You will usually see me making the yeast rolls or something along those lines when I am stressed out. Well, these are another favorite of mine. My mom shared this recipe and we used to have it every year for Christmas. They are an old English recipe that has been passed down our family. They are not the traditional fluffy biscuit-like scones you will get in a coffee shop. They are flat and very sweet. Nothing is added to them. You can slice them open or just leave them whole. I like to put butter on mine – particularly the new Country Crock flavored spreads. The honey butter is fabulous. They are wonderful on their own, but you can top them with butter, honey, jelly, or whatever floats your boat.
