Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. Today it's time to pour a cup of tea because we're going to sit down with some scone recipes!

Over 20 Scone Recipes | Food Bloggers of Canada

Scones are a classic accompaniment to afternoon tea or brunch.  Serve them warm - maybe with a little butter or better yet, some clotted cream and some homemade jam - and you hav

Some people think scones are too dense or dry but that just means they haven't had a really good scone yet!

A perfect scone is hard and crumbly on the outside and light and soft on the inside and ideally should be served warm shortly after coming out of the oven.

A dreamy scone should be able to stand up proudly on its own with no glazes or add-ons.  Those are simply an extra little delight in each mouthful.  Think of a great birthday cake - the cake can be decorated and frosted into a work of art but if the cake underneath all that finery is lousy, it's no good.  Well the same goes for a great scone.

Once you master a great scone, it's a blank canvas.  You can go sweet or savoury, glazed or unglazed.  Add in nuts or berries, cheeses, fruit, bits of ham or bacon - the sky is the limit when it comes to scone.

Scones aren't meant to last more than a day so don't be shy about having seconds.  But better yet, invite friends over for a cup of tea, a scone and a chat -  or put some fresh scones in a basket and take them to a neighbour. They're always better shared!
