My daughter started making these as a "healthy" alternative to cookies since we seem to like cookies of any kind. I've never been able to eat just one, so this recipe seemed perfect for us. —Nichole Jones, Idaho Falls, Idaho
Carole Jasler of Lecanto, Florida asked us to lighten up this British tearoom classic without losing the tender, flaky texture and outstanding flavor of her original recipe. Our Test Kitchen did just that, and the tasty result has 54 fewer calories and 75% less saturated fat per one scone serving.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
After a trip to England, I was determined to learn how to make scones. This recipe is a combination of several from my search. I often get together with my fellow travelers to enjoy a traditional English tea, and these scones are the highlight of that event.
When my mom dropped her homemade rolls while on the way to my house one Thanksgiving, I improvised and whipped up a batch of these buttery bite-sized biscuits. Since then they've been part of our traditional Thanksgiving meal.
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.
