My Rosetta Scone: Orange Ricotta Scones

  4. Looks like a perfectly scrummy scone to me! But since you asked for suggestions to make the perfect scone, well, may I refer you to my blog. Mmmm. Would love a scone and a nice strong cup of tea just now.

  5. I think all great creations especially in food were made by accident or working with what you had. Well done on improvising. I think if you had a handful of dried cranberries in your cupboard I would be in heaven.
