Irish Scone

Pat Mullen


I got this recipe about 43 years ago from Margie Ward, who made this every St. Paddy's Day. I have made this delicious sweet bread now for 43 years. It's delicious with Corned Beef and Cabbage, but it's also great toasted with some butter for breakfast or a snack. Enjoy any time of year!
