I like them and sometimes make some from a recipe found on the web I have always considered Scones as a Scottish specialty. Not that the English can't enjoy scones, but I have always considered them as a specialty we got from the Scots !
My daughters make them on occasion. They use butter and they are a bit sweet but not “sweet” by any means. They are good with bits and pieces made into them or with a bit of Jam. A nice hot cup of tea or coffee with it and all is good.
