Even tastier if you put them into a toastie bag and put your scone into the toaster for 30 secs. Then when you butter your lovely scone the butter will start to melt into the scone and make them even more irresistible. Have a try I totally recommend it. Also you can do the exact same with a microwave but you don't need a toastie bag. Toastie bags can be bought in Cornelscourt Dunnes Stores Co.Dublin for €2.
