My mother was the best scone maker bar none. They were light and soft and rose beautifully. Unfortunately she wasn't a generous cook and never shared her know how. I tried making them once and was roundly criticised for my tough flat offerings which rather put me off. Now, I have a desire to make scones and would be glad of a good, fail-safe recipe that can withstand my hot hands. I have googles several recipes and have been put off by the pictures which all seem to show brown crunchy looking scones. Yuk. Can anyone help?
