Scones or what?

Nyleve | Jun 20, 201510:16 AM

So next week I am making a birthday dessert for a friend's dinner party. There is only one stipulation. There must be strawberries and cream. Which is fine. But since it's his birthday, I'd like it to be something that you can stick a candle into. So I was thinking to make individual rich, sweet scones and top them with creme fraiche and local strawberries. The birthday boy is English. I would make scones, maybe cut into 3 or 4-inch rounds and serve one per person, each with a dollop and creme fraiche and the strawberries. Anyone have a really good recipe for a rich, sweet scone that could work here? I've been googling, and I think maybe I'm looking for a cream scone.
