    Hi Rosemary,
    Delighted to hear you enjoyed the recipe and next time we might suggest that you lower the oven’s temperature. Sometimes ovens may vary and therefore we would recommend that the oven temperature is reduced to 160C/325F, same length of cooking time. This should ensure a softer finish to the scone.
