Scones With Your Tea, My Darling?

I was invited by my girlfriend to a tea party on New Year's Eve. So I thought I'd have a share in the festive spirit and bring over some of my own high tea creations. And what's a lovely English afternoon tea without some classic cream scones?

They actually came out better than I expected. The light and flaky crust glistened with shades of amber and gold (thanks to the double egg wash), and the interior was moist, crumbly and specked with shriveled nuggets of burgundy-colored raisins - the slight tanginess complementing the rich cream crumbs perfectly.

Hmm, I think I will bake this more often.

Sunshine, your scones look really yummy I swear. I must try them someday! Well i'm not sure how it taste but just by looks alone, they sure have got me growling!
