What is Christmas for me ? Christmas is using a lot of warm spices and marzipan for making great tasting home-made foods. These scones are bringing these things together in a wonderful tasting. I decided to serve them together with butter instead of the usual whipped cream and jam.
Scones are easy to make and takes no time at all to make - within 30 minutes you can sit down with a freshly baked scone and relax with a cup of this home-made Christmas Tea (which a bit longer time to make). Another scone, which is fitting perfect into Christmas time, you could try out these spicy scones with dried fruits.
