Cinnamon Raisin Scones

A Scone, is a Scone, is a Scone? I think not… 

For those of you who love a good Scone, you have got to try this recipe. A fabulous, yet healthy alternative to the butter packed, sugar soaked traditional Scone. I promise you, these babies will have to wishing you had done a morning Tea tradition sooner…. I’ve had one every morning for the past week and let me tell you, my english accent if coming along just splendidly lad.
