Reviews forBlueberry Orange Scones
"Wow. I don't know if it was something I did or didn't do but these were awful. First, I think the heat was too high because they browned but were not done all the way through. Second, they just were, awful. I love scones and these were tasteless and gross. Waste of time. I'm so disappointed."
"I baked these one night to serve the next morning for breakfast. My husband and I love them! Tender and flavorful and it doesn't wreck our calorie-counts."
"Definitely needs more sugar in the batter and sprinkling on top. Batter was too thick and hard to fold in blueberries, also a tad dry. Will not make these again without making some changes to it."
"Very good! I didn't have any buttermilk, so I just used fat-free milk instead. I also didn't have any orange peel, but they still turned out great!"
"KatySconces are so good, and i would love ones with real bluberries, since they are really good for us..recipe is a keeper... hot cup of coffee?..lol Jackie"
