Not sure why Deborah calls these scones, they would be cookies to Americans or to us Brits, biscuits.
Deborah was English, so she should have known a scone when she saw one.
What do Americans call scones, biscuits?
All very confusing.
Scones, cookies, biscuits, whatever you want to call them, these are really good. I put glace cherries in the centre of some of mine, coconut and cherry being a classic combination. I do know though, that some people are cherry averse. Anne who I work with loves individual sized Bakewell Tarts
but she always picks the cherry off and if she can’t shift it, will eat all around it and throw away the cherry and the icing it sailed in on too. But I like ’em!
Deborah’s recipe is here if you are looking in September 2014, if it is at some time in the future, you’ll get a surprise recipe of the month!
I’m surprised that I haven’t done a Deborah Kerr recipe before but it appears not. It sure has put me in the mood for watching Black Narcissus…
Deborah Kerr was Scottish it is a Scottish scone http://honestcooking.com/creamy-scones-with-specks-of-currants/
Oooh, thanks Davy! But these are much more like biscuits (in the non-American sense of biscuits) than scones… A bit odd!
