Family favourite scone recipe

While on our honeymoon in Ireland, Will and I tasted the most delicious scones. The cafe was in a quaint town by the countryside, where we stopped to soak in the stunning sights of the Irish countryside on a hiking path along the outskirts of the town.Walk in the Irish CountrysideSomewhere along the way, we managed to get lost and found ourselves on a small shoulder of a busy highway, trying desperately to find our way back to the car. When we finally found our way back to the village, we decided to stop and enjoy a little snack.

Irish-inspired Tea Scones

Ingredients:
– 3 cups flour
– 1 cup margarine
– 1/2 cup sugar
– 4 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 2 eggs
– 1/3 cup milk

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375º.
Mix flour, margarine, sugar, baking powder and salt until crumbly.
Make a well in the middle of the bowl and add eggs and milk.
Knead all together so mixture will hold. Roll and cut. Bake at 375º for 10-12 minutes.

Mix it up a bit! The ones we enjoyed in Ireland were white chocolate and raspberry, but feel free to try adding chocolate chips or blueberries for a different taste!
