My kids and I love to mix the ingredients together and turn out these delicious scones. The tart cherries and brown sugar and almond streusel complement the tender scones perfectly. —Teresa Ralston, New Albany, Ohio
"My mother handed down this recipe to me when I moved out of the house," recalls Hollye Chapman of Corvallis, Oregon. "It produces a very light scone that tastes great with orange marmalade, lemon curd or most kinds of jam. Use any flavor fruit yogurt if you don't have orange," she adds.
"One lazy Sunday afternoon when I had a craving for a good biscuit or scone, I came across this recipe in an old cookbook," notes Lois Smyth of Pincher Creek, Alberta. "The scones have become a favorite in our home because they're so quick and easy to prepare. Serve them warm," she adds.
Pecans and oatmeal take center stage in these tender treats from Margaret Wilson. "They are delicious with jam or marmalade," says the Hemet, California reader. "I also like them with sharp cheddar cheese or a dab of relish at supper."
With a biscuit-like texture, these sweet scones are wonderful spread with butter or jam. Serve them alongside a medley of berries at your next holiday brunch…or enjoy them as an afternoon snack with a hot cup of tea.
