    French Tart's Note:

    This Californian olive recipe was sent to me by some lovely Bed and Breakfast guests (now good friends), who come from Temecula in California. They have stayed with us a couple of times now and love this part of SW France, and the food and wine! They grow olives and avocados, and regularly send me a selection of "California Growers" recipe leaflets, magazines and cookbooks, as well as a box of avocados every year! Always a treat! I have made these scones/biscuits several times now for appetisers and nibbles, as well as for picnics - they are delicious when eaten warm with fresh butter, mustard and ham. I make these with French olives, but I am sure my friends don't mind!

      Mmm, another wonderful treat from your kitchen! Yum, Yum, Yum, these scones were just delicious!!!! They had such a great herby, cheesy flavour and a great texture! The otuside was crisp and crunchy and the inside flaky. Just like a scone should be! I omitted the optionals, used all whole spelt flour and subbed sun-dried tomatoes for half the olives as I dont care for them all that much. But other than that I stuck to your recipe and it turned out just fabulous! I will be making these again and again and again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing yet another winner with us, FT! Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #23 June 2010.
