Rainy Day Scones

Its one of those days.  Rainy and cold, and all I wanted for brunch was my mum's hot scones covered with lashings of jam and whipped cream.  Thankfully she was in a caring, sharing mood - plus she wanted them as well :P

While I slaved over the computer, mum whipped up a batch of her lighter than air scones.  Actually it's a miracle that they turn out as well as they do.  I have been told that when she was first learning to make them... many moons ago, she made great golf balls.  Then after getting a lesson and some good advice from an elderly neighbour, Nanna Rene, she started to make the scones I've known and loved all my life.

After 3 beautiful, scrumptious, delicious scones covered in strawberry jam and a dollop of whipped cream I am officially stuffed.  So here I sit, in front of the computer again.  Sipping a cup of hot tea and dreaming of the arrival of spring and warm weather.
