The next time you're hosting a brunch or want something special at breakfast, make these wonderful scones. They're soft and lightly sweet. Easy to make, they have a toasted almond aroma as they come out of the oven. Spread the honey butter on the scones when they're warm. It melts into the scone making them irresistible.
