I noticed the recipe says vanilla extract but the method says almond...

This recipe makes lovely scones :) a real hit with the whole family and none of that horrible baking powder taste either. Takes about 5 mins to make the mix up which produces 6 biggish scones.

Made these with my 4 yr old. The mix made 7 scones, they are super light and fluffy :)

Almond extract...vanilla essence. Talking of cooking sherry....

All "what" almond essence? And what do I do with the vanilla extract? (I'll assume the instructions were referring to the vanilla extract and put it down to either a cut-and-pastry error or a tad too much cooking sherry. ;-)
