Years ago scones began as a Scottish quick bread. Originally they were made with oats and prepared on the griddle. Today’s version, however, is more often made with flour and baked in the oven. Some say the word “Skone” originated from the Dutch word ‘schoonbrot’, which means beautiful bread, while others argue it comes from Stone of Destiny, where the Kings of Scotland were crowned. Scones originated in Scotland in the early 1500s as stated by Webster’s Dictionary..
Scones became popular in England when when Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788 – 1861), ordered the servants, one afternoon, to serve tea with some type of sweet bread, which included some scones. Never having had them before, she was delighted by them and began requesting them every afternoon with her tea. Today this English tradition or ‘Afternoon Tea Time’, which is at exactly at 4:00 p.m., is still practiced. Scones continue to be served with the traditional clotted cream topping in Britain.
Ingredients in the Cranberry Orange Scone Mix are enriched bleached wheat flour, malted barley flour, Craisins, orange peel, sugar, baking powder, salt. Net wt. 10 oz.
