As a reluctant and often times struggling home-baker, I have an unfounded, persistent, borderline sickening obsession with making biscuits and scones. Nobody in the family eats them but me really (it isn’t saying much when you scan through all members in the family).

So I don’t know, I guess they just feel so much more earnest than cookies and cakes, a warmer and friendlier thing to break over a conversation or a cup of tea… very British isn’t it. I wish I could enjoy them over a cuppa, sat in a nice café in the scone’s hometown of the UK. Perhaps enjoying the classiness of an afternoon tea for two bristol way or somewhere.
