Allowing these scones to just touch while cooking will keep them moist and help them to rise in the oven. The secret to this recipe is the resting time. If you skip this step you'll be making rock cakes rather than scones.
These quick scones are just like Nana used to make! A splash of lemonade and a dollop of cream in the mix and you've got a soft, easy to knead dough that will be in and out of the oven before you can say, butter and jam!
