Cherry Scone aroma has drifted through my house and met my nose this last week and not only pleased me, but gave me such a great excuse to have tea with my sister!
After I made these scones and they were in the oven baking, I pulled out my nice linen table cloth my mom gave me, (thanks Mom) opened my china cabinet door and chose my special delicate tea cups that were a gift from a life long friend Roxy, (thanks Roxy)! My sister Elizabeth and I were able to have a blissful sit-down time together.
These scones were not only delicious, but also captured a wonderful memory 😉
My sister Elizabeth made some amazing pomegranate scones which has inspired me so much to start a series with her all about scones.
