These were SO good! They're not overly sweet, but so tender and yummy. My first time making scones was a big success; they disappeared really quickly at the office with many requests for the recipe!

My first attempt at scones and it was a good one. It took about a half hour for me to make these, but I'm kinda slow and kept rereading the directions to get it right. I also cooked them for about 25 minutes. These were a big hit, especially with me. Just a hint of sweetness, and the sugar sprinkled on at the end is a must. I would increase the amount of dried apricots to maybe a whole cup or I was thinking this would be good made with Craisins (sweetened dried cranberries). This is a keeper. Thanks!

These are very good. I just had one warm out of the oven. The next time I may use semi-sweet chocolate instead of white since it goes very well with apricots. Thanks for the recipe.

These were delicious. I found the dough a bit difficult to work with...very crumbly. I substituted buttermilk for the half-and-half but next time I'll use the half-and-half and add a bit more or reduce the flour measure slightly to see if the dough will stick together. There was no way I could knead the dough without overhandling it.
