Meet the Cook: I've found you don't need to put butter on these scones...they're delicious plain and simple. I especially enjoy them in the wintertime with hot coffee or tea. Married for 44 years, we have two grown children and five grandchildren. -Helen Carpenter, Albuquerque, New Mexico

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 23, 2013

I added an icing sugar glaze to the top of my scones and used 1 cup of fresh strawberries instead of the cranberries. My boyfriend said that they may have been the best scones he has ever tasted. A definite recommend to make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 10, 2011

A nice tender scone but we would have liked them if they'd been just a little sweeter. And next time I'll probably double the amount of fruit too.
