Top Review by cmiall

I tried this recipe as it looked great - IF ONLY I'd read the review posted! totally correct - there is too much flour and I think the amount of 2 2/3 is a typo. mine turned out like scone dough after trying to amend the flour overdose with milk and egg. Maybe it should read 1 2/3 cup??
