MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 21, 2012

"These are not as flaky as I prefer my scones, but the flavor was excellent! I did try replacing the oil with vegetable shortening, used cold butter and cut the fat into the dry ingredients in the classic biscuit fashion, hoping to get a flakier scone but it still just wasn't."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 17, 2009

"Everyone I have made these for, loves them! They are yummy! They are quite wet though, so I had to use a generous amount of flour before cutting them into wedges."
