    Translation: Are you going to show some class or do I have to remind you of the many ways that I got you to make other changes?

    What’s wrong with scones? The ones I’ve had were great, and I didn’t have any tea to go with them.

    Of course, the ongoing question is whether it’s pronounced scone or scone.

    I was in Scotland and went to a tea shop. It was on the honor system. You got tea and a tray of pastries. When done, you stated what you ate and they would calculate payment. I didn’t know what most of them were called and just pointed at examples of what I ate. They got a kick out of that, LOL!

    It sounds like scones kind of like bagels.

    If made correctly, scones are not hard or tasteless, whether savoury or sweet.

    Like scones, but loath black pudding and blood sausages. . .

    That’s why you need the jam and clotted cream!

    Scones can be great, or awful. Like any baked good, it depends on who made it.

    Give me a lovely blueberry scone topped with some clotted cream any day over a diabetes in a ring donut.

    The scones (pronounced “scawns” I’m told by Scots I know) I’ve had have been pretty edible.

    Now biscotti: I’ve seen people try to bite them off without even dunking them, which is pretty much guaranteed to keep your dentist very profitably busy.

    Fresh or toasted, an excellent transfer mechanism for a generous amount of real butter in the many pockets. And a lot of other spreadable and meltable things you might want to try.

    Scones and English muffins are cousins across the waters. Mr. Thomas, who marketed the English muffin, is supposed to have claimed it was what his English mother used to make.

    Several of our local grocery stores have in-house bakeries, and they sell ‘two-bite’ scones in different variations. We’ve become addicted to the orange-cranberry ones. They are soft, crumbly, and delicately flavored. Unlike donuts, they aren’t too sweet.

    And, speaking of donuts— we live along the east-coast donut-divide. When I was growing up, this was southern Krispy-Kreme country. As people filtered in from the New England states, they came with a preference for Dunkin. But neither of those will ever match the long-closed, local, all-night bakery where you could get fresh cinnamon twists straight from the baking sheets if you stopped in at 2am.

    Those were donuts. How long ago was that? My friends and I would sneak out from sleepovers and walk to the bakery in our pajamas.

    After that veiled threat, I’d tell her where she could deposit said scone.

    I have baked and served thousands of scones and they were never hard or tasteless. Very much like a donut except baked instead of fried and they don’t have a hole in them. A hard scone would have to be very old or the person making them doesn’t know what they are doing. Blueberry were always the favorite.
