{almond spice scones}

I tried a new scone for Easter! I added it to an old post on scone variations but thought you'd like the update brought to your attention... Sometimes when I make these, I cut them into smaller triangles, making about 14 or 15, rather than 8 triangles. Portion control. Sort of.
