Reviews for Double Orange Scones
"This recipe originally appeared over 15 years ago in a Pillsbury monthly cookbook. The only difference: she added the 1/4 tsp salt. Outrageously dishonest."
"This recipe is absolutely amazing! I've made these scones at least 25 times and every time they just dissapear!"
"Good, but the orange flavor in the scones is faint."
"I am English and these rate right up there, make them all the time, they are great"
