"I made these substituting gluten-free flour which changes the consistency slightly but they were still very delicious! The only thing I would change the next time I make them is to thicken up the icing drizzle. It was a bit watery so it didn't stay on the scones very well."

"Delicious! I had to use a little more cream than called for to make the dough stick together, but they were very tasty."

"I kept looking for some butter in the ingredient list! I thought the mix was quite dry and ended up adding more cream so it would hold together. My husband and I both liked the taste of the scones, but I thought they were also a bit dry. As another reviewer mentioned, the next time I will cut them into eight pieces rather than six as they are quite large. I might try adding a little butter next time."

"I agree with Franwinba 100%. Seriously--how often are you going to eat them? Everything in moderation. I love scones, and these are tasty. The only change I made was to use a vanilla glaze instead of cream cheese--just personal preference. Try these!"

"This was the first time I made Scones. I

liked how easy they were to make. I will
make them again. The flavors blend together so well."
