Scones

As I am getting interested in baking day by day, I love to try different things every time.  Still there is a lot of things i have to bake in my list. This time i have tried my hands on this beautiful looking scones. I was just watching food network and saw INA Garten preparing scones for breakfast and I got inspired to bake this for myself. Also, this is perfect for breakfast I do not have to worry about making breakfast once i make this. Scones are quick bread of Scottish origin as the name suggests. I love to have my scones with orange marmalade.
