"Most scones are pretty bland to me, but these are smooth with a touch of sweet. They are very sticky once you add the strawberries. I ate them warmed with a little strawberry jam. They freeze well."

"These were just OK, not much flavor and really missed the mark on the texture of a good scone."

"These tasted great but I had a little trouble getting the strawberries kneaded in without the dough becoming sticky. I think it might be better to add the berries to the dry ingredients after you cut the butter in. Then add the cream and gently knead five times. I think that's what I will try next time I make them."

"Pretty good, as far as scones go. Not to dry, like some are. Very strawberry-y."

"My family loved these scones - disappeared in a few minutes. Just a few notes - when you add the cream the mixture will be crumbly but becomes a dough when you add the strawberries. We added some whipped cream on top (spray bottle was easy) to make them even better."
