:notes:


1. Serve best when warm with clotted cream and jam. I just don't understand why is it so difficult to find clotted cream here. In Vancouver, you can easily buy them from grocery store like Safeway. Maybe I will have to make clotted cream myself....T_T



2. Scones can be stored in air tight container for 3 days or freeze in the freezer for up to a month.
