Ellen’s Easy Scones


July 14, 2012

These scones are tasty and easy to make! Us kids love making and eating them! Kids like me can do most of it except for putting in and taking out of the oven.

I learnt this recipe at Source Sligo Cookery School's cookery camp.

I hope you have as much fun as I had!
