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."

“Scones are comfort food to me, and I wanted to make
a savory version with roasted garlic butter. The addition
of bacon seemed natural. Their cocktail size makes them fun; they also work for a brunch buffet."—Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts
"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.
As a quick way to warm everyone up, I make these lemony scones to go with a pot of hot tea. Sometimes I like to add dried cherries to the batter, to jazz it up a little.—Angela Matz, West Allis, Wisconsin
You'll want to stash a few of these homemade morsels in the freezer to serve to visitors who drop in unexpectedly. "Just pop a frozen scone in the microwave for 20 seconds or so, and you have a warm treat," suggests Joan Francis of Spring Lake, New Jersey.
