Very good! First time ever making scones, and they worked perfectly!

I just made this and they didn’t turned of right. They needed more milk and since you can only knead it for 6-8 times, they were not mixed all the way! Not making it again ????

I double the recipe and if looks like they needed more milk, and since I could only knead it 6-8 times, the dough was not completely formed! The flavor is nice but I don’t think I’ll be making these again.

My family loves these, usually double the recipe. We are from a family of bakers, and these past the test. I usually swirl a plain powdered sugar glaze on top! Yum!

Used my food processor, doubled the recipe and added grated orange rind. The flavor is delicious but they are like a cake than a biscuit or scone. Not what I was going for but they are delicious and pretty fast to whip up.

These scones are more cake like. I doubled the recipe as well. The flavor is on point and my husband already requested them again. I also used whole wheat pastry flour instead of AP Flour.

If you're expecting a traditional British scone, this recipe is not for you. These are not a vehicle for jam and butter. These are American scones and should be reviewed accordingly. Take your time cutting in the butter. Use stick butter and a flour with a high protein content. Don't over-knead or over-stir. This will result in dry, dense scones. Sprinkle with coarse sugar crystals, not fine sugar. It does make a big difference. This is a fantastic recipe, and I've received some great compliments using it. Follow the recipe and never over-knead your dough!

Easy and delicious. Came out perfect. Will be making these again.

I've made this quite a few times, and while tasty, they've always been more bready or cakey than a scone, and don't look like the picture at all. I've tried using different milk like whole compared to 2%, different types of butter (don't use margarine haha) and different fruits in it the the bottoms are always a little dark and the consistency isn't right. is there something I'me doing wrong?

I think the recipe is great, my scones came out pretty big so next time I will make them just a tad bit smaller. I didn't use coarse sugar for the top, I used fine sugar. I like that they are quick to make and with the second batch I had them in about a minute less. I'm off to the kitchen to make more.
