Irish Scones

I took my mom to Ireland in July 1997. We ate at a little restaurant in the village of Adare,  County Limerick and they served these scones.  Adare was lovely. Thatched roof cottages! Cottage gardens. Sigh. I realize it is not exactly a detailed recipe but this is what they gave us when we asked. I’ll add a more detailed one but I wanted to share this one because my mom so loved her trip to the Old Sod.

  • 8 oz Self Rising Flour
  • 2 ozs Butter
  • 1 oz Sugar
  • Fruit
  • 1 Egg
  • 5 tablespoons of Butter Milk

Mix everything. Make into scone shapes. Bake in a very hot oven (?????? how hot).  Top shelf for 15 or 20 minutes. 

Ya have to love the Irish!!!!
