It is about time, that I bake some scones for this Christmas Calendar of 2016 with focus on afternoon tea. These scones could be served with butter, clementine curd and tea/coffee.

I really the taste of the scones, which was fantastic. However, I was not to happy about the texture of the scones dough, so I would next time use this recipe on classic scones as starting point.
