One thought on “Booklish: Matilda Honey Oatmeal Scones Recipe”

  1. To be honest, I’ve never been massively fond of scones, but I want to make these ASAP just because a. Matilda!!! and b. honey-oatmeal makes everything better. And I’m always looking for new breakfasty-snack recipes, too.

    Out of practical curiosity, do you think using margarine actually alters the taste/consistency?
