A lovely reader once came up to me and thanked me sweetly for this rose and Turkish delight scone recipe. She said that when she made it for an event, they were the most popular item on the table. These scones are scented with rosewater with chunks of Turkish delight in them. They're topped with a drizzle of pink rose icing and served with a rose crème!
