Scones, Oat Scones, Herbed SconesThese scones are hearty, but soft. These are definitely an American type scone as a Brit would never deem to call this a scone. However, we Americans like our scones soft and rich. In preparation for my Lavender themed tea party, these scones are good to provide an option for those who don’t go ga-ga for lavender. Not to mention, these are bit more savory for those that prefer them to sweet scones.
