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
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.
"Whether served for breakfast, brunch or afternoon tea, nothing beats the aroma or taste of these rich scones," promises Ruth Lee of Troy, Ontario. "Featuring dried cranberries and raisins, they're a slice of heaven, particularly when topped with a little jam."
