Scones are one of my favorite โ€˜treatsโ€™ to have with coffee in the morning.ย  Depending on what kind of scone I make, I like them for dessert as well. ย  The big debate is if a scone is a different version of a biscuit or not.ย  Iโ€™ll leave that up for debate.

I like a scone that is not too dry but also not too wet.ย  I like a scone light enough to be crumbly but not too heavy.ย  A scone needs to hold up to butter or jam or something else.ย  It serves well with coffee or tea.

Here is my version of a light crumbly scone with strawberries and cream.ย  I hope you like it.
