Orange marmalade and fragrant basil give these delightful scones a slightly sweet, garden-fresh flavor. They’re tender and moist and perfect with morning or afternoon tea. —Hannah Wallace, Wenatchee, Washington

"I made these for a brunch and everyone loved them. It's a delicious and unique flavor combination that's worth trying! I will definitely make again. (Oh, I used fresh basil and the aroma was heavenly.)"

"This recipe was a hit with the kids as well as myself :) It has a fresh taste and the marmalade provides sweetness. I did serve with a small piece of butter on top, but it does not really need it.

Delicious :)"
