"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!"
