easy to make, delicious, tender, moist. very good!!!!
My favorite scone recipe by far, plus the added bonus with the berry butter compliments them perfectly.
I just made these and have finished my first one. Now I have many many recipes and have tried many that were ok, but nothing special, and I wouldn't make them again. But these scones are amazing and I'll be keepinllg this recipe around for sure! I'm taking them to my churches womens meeting and I'm sure they'll be a hit!
These scones are very good. I usually like my scones to be more savory than sweet and cut the sugar in half. The first time I made these I completely forgot the sugar all together! Oops! So I brushed them with pumpkin coffee creamer and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. I served them with butter srpinkled with more cinnamon sugar and my kids didn't know the difference! I usually make these with 2 T sugar and mini cinnamon chips instead of the pecans. I also pat 2 six in circles and make 12 scones. These are good however you make them!
