I love scones. I love everything about them. I especially love how you can put just about any combo of flavors together and get a delicious flavor. I'm sure my Irish ancestors would thrash me for combining Irish Cream and English Toffee but honestly the taste is too wonderful to quibble over! I know I'll be enjoying these on St. Patrick's Day and maybe even on St. George's Day! (They freeze well!)
