i borrowed a book from the National Library and followed that method to prepare scones. When we went to Cameron Highlands we came to know scones are famous there . But i taste this only today. A simple recipe and we can enjoy it if we like to taste with any flavor. There are various varieties of scones . This is a basic one.
