The secret to good scones is to handle the dough as little as possible and to use cold ingredients to achieve flaky layers; that’s about it! These are proper scones—ones that will heal any bad day, bad week, or like in this case, a broken heart. Have them during the holidays, during a break-up, in the dead of winter, in the middle of summer– they’re exceptional.
