With Mother’s Day only a couple of days away it seems fitting that this weeks Feature Friday Recipe is Scones with Jam and Cream! YUM! The Merrymaker sisters have nailed this recipe and doesn’t it just look incredible! I will HAVE to make a batch this weekend and eat them. Unfortunately my mummy is on the other side of the country, and my partners mum is on the other side of the world at the moment so we will just have to eat the whole batch ourselves! So it’s a good thing these delish scones are 100% sugar free and HEALTHY – with hidden vegetables too! bonus!
