What a fun little book! My daughters love having tea parties, and they love scones–whether it’s for a tea party, or just a snack or even an accompaniment for dinner. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed this book. Every kind of scone you can imagine! I started with the Singing Hinnies. They’re quick and easy to make, and kids love hearing them ‘sing’ on the griddle. They’re quite delicious, as well. I enjoy the savoury scones probably better than the sweet, though some of my kids definitely prefer sweet. That’s the great thing about this book–it has a great variety of both. For the savoury lovers, try the Ploughman’s Scones or Welsh Cheese and Herb Scones. Cheese, Spring Onion and Bacon Breakfast Scones are a great alternative to your “normal” breakfast. If sweet scones are your favorite, there’s everything from chocolate varieties to fruits, honey and more. I have yet to try a National Trust cookbook that I didn’t fall in love with, and this one is no different. It is utterly delightful and so much fun to cook from. I highly recommend it. I received a copy of this book from IPG for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
