My wife and I enjoyed a rosemary-lemon coffee cake at a bed and breakfast many years ago. I decided to try adapting my favorite scone recipe to capture that unusual flavor combination, and we loved the results. —David Byland, Shawnee, Oklahoma
Serve these for breakfast or a brunch. They're also a great after-school snack. They freeze well besides—simply thaw, warm and serve when you need them.
We live in a cherry-producing region—and every guest expects to find some on our table! My husband and I have three children...20,11 and 9.
Meet the Cook: I've found you don't need to put butter on these scones...they're delicious plain and simple. I especially enjoy them in the wintertime with hot coffee or tea.
Married for 44 years, we have two grown children and five grandchildren.

These delicate scones are the perfect lightly sweet treat to serve with coffee or tea at any holiday get-together. It's a simple bread since, like biscuits, it doesn't require much kneading and there's no need to let the dough rise.
"When you set out a plate of these golden scones flecked with bits of cheddar cheese, everyone will know you've put your heart into your baking," assures Edna Hoffman of Hebron, Indiana. "They're a nice alternative to biscuits."
