This recipe is great as is. It also works with add ins like raisins or sultanas.
I have literally made this recipe hundreds of times! (I used to bake for a couple of local coffee shops.) Not only did my customers rave about these scones, but my family looks forward to them as well!
Easy to make and tasty, but plain. Next time, I'm adding blueberries! Thanks for the recipe!
They came out moist and light...very good.
Yummy! Delicious for anytime, breakfast, with a cup of coffee or with a meal. Thanks!
