Members of JASNA-GL volunteered to bake the recipes and two marathon tasting sessions took place in April and May. It came down to two excellent recipes, so two winners were declared.
One scone, the Vanilla Orange with clotted cream and marmalade (seen in the photograph as the heart-shaped scone), will be the official scone for the four-course afternoon tea and the other, English Toffee with Walnuts (circular scone to the right of the heart-shaped scones), will be offered for sale in the Earl of Sandwich Shoppe during the Festival.
The Winners are Effie Sahihi (Orange Vanilla) of Hendersonville, TN and Linda Levengood (English Toffee with Walnuts) of Crystal Lake, IL. Each will receive $100 for their winning scone recipes.
