I never thought I could successfully bake scones. Just looking at them, they always have appeared slightly more complex that my baking skills could handle. I am really like a third grader in the kitchen and scones seemed to be something that only real bakers make.
I am not a huge fan of having a big breakfast. I prefer to have a smaller one consisting of a cereal bar, bowl of oatmeal or an occasional bagel and then I try to snack healthily the rest of the day until lunch. Scones would fall right into my perfect-sized kind of breakfast I enjoy. So I just decided to do it already! If they turned out bad, whatever. I had all of the ingredients already so no loss. And if they turned out amazing, I could gloat and brag that I am not a legit scone maker-baker.
