      These were easy to make, and absolutely fabulous. They were the first thing to disappear from the breakfast table on Easter Sunday, and I have a feeling that I will be getting a lot of requests for them in the future. Thanks for the recipe, Peggy Lynn!

      Tasty scones! Good flavor and texture. I also needed most of the buttermilk, and I had to cook them a little longer than 20 minutes (could be my oven). Next time I would cut back a bit on the pepper, and the salt (that might be because I used salted butter). I might also try adding some herbs...dill, maybe?

      Oh my, how delicious the scones turned out! I followed the directions, using a thick-cut bacon, subbing diced sweet onion for the green onions (forgot to get), and reduced the pepper to 1 teaspoon b/c granddaughter was going to have breakfast with us. I needed all the liquid called for the dough to hold together. The scones smelled wonderful and tasted even better. The kids loved them and 2 yr old DGD did too. Definitely recommend this recipe for a savory treat! (Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow morning for breakfast!)
