Courtesy of King Arthur Flour, I was able to experience one of their fabulous gift sets. The Scone Gift - Large includes everything you need to have fresh baked scones at home. The kit contains one each English Cream Tea scone mix and Apricot Sour Cream scone mix; one each brandy butter and marmalade, in 2.4-ounce jars; and a 1-ounce jar of clotted cream. The mixes are so easy to make. For the Cream Tea Scones you need salt eggs and heavy cream to add to the mix. The dough is easy to mix and simple to cut into 8 scone wedges. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes. The aroma is very inviting. It is best to serve warm. You can top with any of the toppings included or enjoy them as is. The taste is scrumptious. I liked the marmalade on mine. The Apricot Sour Cream Scones are a delightful flavor. They were very quick to make using salt, cold butter, egg and milk into the mix. The apricot pieces are visible in the batter and I could not wait to taste them. I loved the fruitiness of the apricot with the richness of the sour cream. These would be perfect for a brunch! Delicious!
