“You can use any dried fruit for these tender scones, but my favorite is a mix of dried cranberries and golden raisins,” says Della Dunsieth of New Castle, Pennsylvania. “Don’t overmix or you’ll have a hard, dense scone.”

"I've made this quite a few times, and while tasty, they've always been more bready or cakey than a scone, and don't look like the picture at all. I've tried using different milk like whole compared to 2%, different types of butter (don't use margarine haha) and different fruits in it the the bottoms are always a little dark and the consistency isn't right. is there something I'me doing wrong?"

"I think the recipe is great, my scones came out pretty big so next time I will make them just a tad bit smaller. I didn't use coarse sugar for the top, I used fine sugar. I like that they are quick to make and with the second batch I had them in about a minute less. I'm off to the kitchen to make more."

"I doubled the recipe because I wanted to use up some craisins I had in the house. Dough was very sticky and not easy to work with but the finished product was fantastic!!"

"This was an incredibly simple recipe, and it turned out delicious. I did not have milk, so substituted with whipping cream. This might have contributed to the greatness. Using a pastry blender works very well for blending. I'll add more cranberries next time. I made 6 smaller scones, and 12 minutes was the perfect cooking time."
