A very nice scone recipe. You are so right about the aroma and taste. I loved the tart cranberries with a tart Granny Smith apple, with just enough sugar. Warm right out of the oven with a little butter, there is nothing better. They baked up beautifully and I was very pleased with the outcome. Thanks, Barbara for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Not too sweet - just right. Easily converted these to gluten free by using my favorite GF flour blend and adding 2 T of ground flax seed.

I am always buying scones, in different stores, in different cities. Yesterday, my housekeeper asked me which my favorite flavor scone was and suggested I find a recipe. This was it. She made these this morning and they are as good as the ones I buy at Mary's Marvelous Bakery in East Hampton. Just delicious. Just moist and sweet enough. I don't need any butter to make these outstanding. Thanks for the recipe.
