Exposition Scones

Exposition Scones

Scones are the predecessor of the American biscuit and tend to be lighter.  But be careful not to over-process them or you will have a very heavy scone.  Scones are found throughout Ireland and the UK and most often have raisins or currents in them. These scones are baked in a large round that has been quartered but not separated.
