Cream Scones are a variation of the traditional scones. They are made with cream and milk, which gives them an inimitable softness! To be eaten at teatime with a good cup of Irish tea!

Taste the cream scones

A typical Anglo-Saxon cake!

Cream scones are as good as traditional scones. Just as tasty, they are usually eaten with butter and jam (or marmalade of your choice).

Easy to make, you can find them in most Irish pastries, at ridiculously low prices (about €1.50 each). Their taste is more airy than a normal scone, and it is often more digestible.

The Irish love it and do not hesitate to eat it for breakfast but also at snack time. It is a convivial moment, which will allow you to continue the day on the right foot!
