Plain Scone with Strawberry Freezer Jam

In my family, we have always had two scone recipes, one from my Uncle and one from my Great Aunt.  My Uncle’s recipe calls for an egg and is more golden yellow in color.  My Great Aunt’s recipe does not have eggs and is creamier in color.  I can’t tell you which one is my favorite because it has always been pretty much the flip of a coin to determine which we’d make.  The following recipe comes from my Great Aunt.  It makes eight scones so you can make an assortment, leaving some plain and folding other ingredients such as chocolate chips or cinnamon into others.

Serve these scones warm with berry jam or pile them high with strawberries and whipped cream for a yummy strawberry shortcake.  If you are looking for a scone that is made with an egg and is more golden yellow in color, try my family’s other scones recipe.
