Encyclopedia Article for girdle scone

quick bread of British origin and worldwide fame, made with leavened barley flour or oatmeal that is rolled into a round shape and cut into quarters before baking on a griddle. The first scones were baked in cast iron pans hung in the kitchen fires of rural England and Wales. With the advent of Eastern trade, scones became an integral part of the fashionable ritual of "taking tea," with which they are still served daily, hot and buttered, throughout Britain and many regions of its former empire.
