I have made this twice, expanding the amount of blueberries to 2 cups and adding a lemon sugar glaze. I found when I accidentally added the 2 tablespoons of milk into the recipe with the other milk, the scones came out light and fluffy. When I didn't they came out as traditional scones. Both times scones were very good.

This was my first time baking scones, they were easy and delicious, I plan on using this in the near future.

I don't get why so many people are putting such bad reviews? We love this scones recipe! We have made it three times, and they're so good! We've made them plain, with blueberries, and with strawberries! We love the flavor and the fact that they are not too sweet! Also I don't think that the dough is too dry at all. When ever we've made them they always turn out perfect! Adding fruit to them makes them even less dry and adds some natural sweetness to them. Next time we are going to try making them with bananas and see how they turn out! Thank you for this amazing recipe!??

Scones were very dry and fell apart when we ate them

The reviews calling this recipe too dry are right! There's not even enough milk to hold the dough together. This is more like flour with wet spots in it. This dough was completely unusable and went into the trash.

I don't understand the poor reviews. I make this all the time. The dough isn't dry, it's plenty sweet and lovely. I add a lemon confectioners sugar glaze.

I don't understand the complaints about these being dry or tasteless. The dough was very easy to work with, and I had to sprinkle a little flour on it to keep from sticking to my fingers. I didn't have blueberries, so used frozen blackberries. The scones are light, airy, packed with berry juiciness, and delicious!

I have made plenty of scone recipes before, for years actually, and have tried all kinds of recipes. I have never had an issue, until this one. There is too much flour for 3/4 cup milk. I had to add more milk just to get it to come together. I didn't add the blueberries at the step stated, because it seemed to me, the way the dough was, it would have been very difficult to incorporate them in. So I added them to the dry mix. The flavor was bland. I will never use this recipe again and would not recommend it.

This is the worst scone recipe I've ever made, it has two cups flour too much and is dry and tasteless. Time to rework, don't waste your time making these...
