Here is a simple and fun Summer recipe for Ice Cream Sconewich. It’s going to put a smile on everyone’s face.
A scone is a rich quick bread cut into usually triangular shapes and cooked on a griddle or baked on a sheet.
The scone is a basic component of the cream tea. It differs from teacakes and other types of sweets that are made with yeast.
Its etymology from 1513 comes perhaps from Dutch schoonbrood fine white bread, from schoon pure, clean + brood bread.
Scones were chosen as the Republic of Ireland representative for Café Europe during the Austrian Presidency of the European Union in 2006, while the United Kingdom chose shortbread.
