One of our favorite culinary delights on our trip to Ireland was the delicious simplicity of fresh baked Irish breakfast scones, and they are certainly plentiful there!
Bringing the taste home is a true treat as I was able to memorize the simple ingredients and recipe steps after watching a few home chefs in action… however I have added a few of my own steps such as mixing in dried cranberries, using a pastry sheet for handling the dough, and using cast iron to bake. I hope you enjoy making this delightful treat as much as I do.
