I love this recipe! I have made these twice and have them in the freezer to microwave for snacks and treats. Thank you, Joan, for sharing this recipe.

My family loved these scones. I would call the recipe a winner. Thank you!

I just made these scones, I agree they are a very dry mix. I added an extra tablespoon of cream and water. I also substituted while milk with skim milk. They were the best scones we ever had!! Thanks

Wonderful flavor and texture. Had to use heavy cream as I was out of milk. But it only added to the moistness I would guess. Made a nice addition to breakfast and will be wonderful afternoon snack as well.

This was my first time making scones and they turned out perfect. I omitted the blueberries and added cinnamon and vanilla. Made a simple vanilla glaze. Will definitely be making again!

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.
