Reviews for English Scones
"Very yummy! easy to make. I will be making more of these! :)"
"These scones were delicious! The batter was a tad sticky at first, but when rolled out with a mix of flour and sugar, it turned out perfect. One thing though: watch your oven temp extremely because they may burn. GREAT RECIPE"
"Very sticky and didn't really cook the way their meant to! Very disappointed"
"These scones are AWESOME! Everybody loved them!!! I really got used to scones with tea when I lived in London, and now that I'm back in Brazil I can have them whenever I want."
"Was very bland...should have added some flavoring and dry not a lot . I added blueberries.,no raisins."
"For a savoury version I substitute 1/2 cup of sugar for grated cheese"
