I’ve been making this scones recipe for as long as I can remember; I called them back then “Panecillos”. This was the Colombian Spanish name for Scones, something that took me a couple of decades to realize as Panecillos (or Scones) have always been a natural part of my life.
As you guessed, this is a super simple recipe that not only allows for a great family experience but is also super child friendly.
My kids love getting involved every time we make these scones at home, often per their request, and enjoy choosing and experimenting with different extras toppings like nuts, chocolate, dried fruits, cheese, ham, etc.
I now make this recipe dairy-free so my daughter can enjoy the scones as well by replacing the milk with our Oatly oat-drink and use non-dairy margarine.
Feel free to add your own toppings or enjoy the scones plane with some delicious jam for a cozy family Sunday breakfast
