Several years ago, my parents went to Scotland, where Mom was born. Mom asked Dad to re-create the scones they had on the trip. Mom agrees eating these is like being back in Scotland!—Art Winter, Trumbull, Connecticut
I came up with this recipe in an attempt to copy some terrific buttermilk scones I had at a restaurant in northern Wisconsin. These easy drop scones are the delicious result! —Ellyn Graebert, Tillamook, Oregon
"Your guests will love these scones served with butter, jam or jelly," suggests Ruth Ann Stelfox of Raymond, Alberta. "Or try them as an addition to a weeknight meal. Your family's eyes will light up when they see a plate of them on the table."
Our home economists dressed up the tops of these savory scones with fresh sage leaves. Prepared with only a handful of ingredients, the delectable wedges are ideal alongside soup, pasta or slices of oven-roasted turkey.
No one will suspect that these moist scones from our Test Kitchen staff are light. Featuring a rustic, sugary topping and loaded with whole wheat flour and fresh blueberries, the golden wedges are delightfully nutritious.
Being an Anglophile, I've tried lots of scone recipes over the years, but this is my all-time favorite. It was given to me by a hotel chef in Los Angeles and bakes into batches of lovely Christmas gifts for friends and family.
