I remember having these once in a while when I was growing up. They’re a bit buttery, but you can cut some of the butter if you want to miss out on the yummy goodness. They’re best fresh out of the oven, piping hot with some home-made preserves on them. Yum!
Serve them for breakfast, brunch, or neighborhood get-togethers. They mix up in seconds and bake in only 12 minutes. If you’ve never tried traditional oat scones before, you’re in for a delicious surprise.
