  "Potato scones reflect the influence of the Scottish in the Maritimes
  and their adaptibility in using the famous P.E.I. potato...Scones
  were a favorite Scottish tradition. According to _A Treasury of Nova
  Scotia Recipes_ "the difference between bannock and scone (which the
  Scots rhyme with 'on', not 'bone') is that the bannock is a rather
  large, round cake, and the scone is a smaller triangle or 'farl'..But
  local usages vary considerably, Scots being strong individualists.
   A similar recipe for German Buns appears in an Ontario cookbook from
  the Kitchener area, where German settlers were predominant.
   When Their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited
  Government House in Halifax on June 15,1939, scones were served. And
  Canadian Brits gathered for "tea at the Empress" in Victoria for
  scones and tea.

  baking sheet; brush with reserved egg yolk and sprinkle with more
  sugar. Cut into 16 wedges, separating slightly. Bake in 425F oven for
