Story Behind this Recipe
I love scones so much and so I've been experimenting with various recipes. Folding in the dough entails are flaky exterior. Adding bread flour makes the inside soft and moist. With this combination of the flaky exterior and the moistness inside, these scones turned out pretty well.
It's best to let the dough rest for more than 1 day. Use high quality ingredients for ultimate results.
