"When you set out a plate of these golden scones flecked with bits of cheddar cheese, everyone will know you've put your heart into your baking," assures Edna Hoffman of Hebron, Indiana. "They're a nice alternative to biscuits."

"I've been making these scones for years. They are easy to make and taste great. My kids all enjoy them. Sometimes I just pat the dough into a circle and make wedges."
