    These savory scones are absolutely DELICIOUS!!! My family just loved them (as did I)! Instead of making 12 smaller scones, I ended up making 8 larger scones. These were especially delicious right out of the oven with a touch of butter on them - yummmmmmm!!!!

    I'm new at making scones, but these ones turned out great! Love the flavor of dill and caraway. These were so flakey and good. Great served along side any soup, and a good way to use up any leftover sour cream or ricotta. Will definately be making these again.
