Reviews forButtery Cranberry Scones
"Great recipe! Good served with orange butter (1/2 cup softened butter + 2 TABS. orange marmalade)!"
"Then this one came out in the magazine, it instantly became a holiday standard at our house. I have never had such a moist scone. Everyone loves it. So save time in the morning, I will mix the dry ingredients the night before. I do use our homemade plain yogurt as a substitute for the buttermilk."
"This was an amazing recipe, my kids loved it too and if I hadn't made it for breakfast I would have added a lemon confectioner sugar glaze to top it off. Yummy!"
