Strawberry Jam Scone Ring
Nothing goes better with a pot of afternoon tea than scones made to a traditional recipe. This easy recipe is adapted from Easy Baking,The Australian Women's Weekly ,which the original recipe called Plum Jam Scone Ring and I used the strawberry jam instead . These scones came out light and fluffy, and the aroma of fresh baked goodness filled my home. (Hubby had 3 servings!!)
