I was visiting Kelli's blog, "There's No Place Like Home", when I came across this recipe for her scones. I was stopped in my tracks at how delicious they looked. So after reading the ingredients to make sure I had everything, I set out to make them. I have to tell you they were so easy to make and their taste is AMAZING!
