When I first visited the UK in 2013, it was a trip of many firsts. There were all these shops I had never seen in real life, the famous Cadburry Easter eggs, the Dr. Pepper flavored lip smacker I’d heard so much about. But one thing that really stuck with me was the scone. You could get it with tea and butter almost anywhere, in the fruity or cheesy variety. It was the latter that got me most interested, and I tried a recipe soon after I returned home. Did it work? Obviously not. But nevertheless, she persisted. And guess what? These scones are almost as tasty as they are in their homeland.
