Scone: a Scottish tea biscuit commonly served with jam, butter, and/or clotted cream.
British scones are often lightly sweetened, but may also be savory. They frequently include raisins, currants, cheese or dates.
The scone is a basic component of Devonshire tea along with finger sandwiches and miniature desserts.
Scones are popular in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland, but are eaten in many other countries.
The word scone can be pronounced two ways: with a long “o” so it rhymes with “cone“ or “Joan” or with a short “o” so it rhymes with “con” or “John.”
