Love the soft texture of these scones. They need a little salt and some additional flavor. The next time I make them I will add a half teaspoon salt, some orange or lemon zest and dried cranberries or blueberries.

Tried these today and they are the best by far! I made according to the recipe but needed to add 1 tsp. regular milk because the dough was too crumbly. I also added a few mini chocolate chips. Delicious!

Excellent recipe! I also added some cinnamon and topped the hot scones with a powdered sugar vanilla glaze. The kids ask for this every morning for breakfast.

Made these for a friend's mom recovering from surgery- the family loved them since they were soft and delicious, with just a little taste of cinnamon. Pretty easy to make too!
