Newspaper clipping of The Hotel Windsor's Scone Recipe

We have a very excited member of the My Apron Family; my Grandmother.

Although she has been one of the biggest fans of My Apron since day one, my grandmother finally understood today the concept of the personal storage and management of recipes that My Apron will offer.

Today I was talking with her on the phone, and she told me about a recipe she cut out of the newspaper for our website. She was very happy when I told her I would put it in a blog post, so she took a photo of it and messaged it to me.

So here it is 🙂

From my Grandmother and myself, we hope you enjoy The Hotel Windsor’s Scone Recipe.

Enjoy it with some jam and cream, some coffee or tea, and especially with your dear friends and loved ones.

Now I’m going to take a screenshot of this blog post and message it to my Grandmother, and she will get a lovely surprise to read it, and to also discover that I want to cook these scones with her one day!
