MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 4, 2012

"These savory scones are absolutely DELICIOUS!!! My family just loved them (as did I)! Instead of making 12 smaller scones, I ended up making 8 larger scones. These were especially delicious right out of the oven with a touch of butter on them - yummmmmmm!!!!"

MY REVIEW

"I'm new at making scones, but these ones turned out great! Love the flavor of dill and caraway. These were so flakey and good. Great served along side any soup, and a good way to use up any leftover sour cream or ricotta. Will definately be making these again."
