Made a double batch of these without any optional add ins, flavourings or toppings. I accidentally added 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar (I keep it in the same type of jar as my baking powder and didn't catch my error until I'd already added it to the dry ingredients). Still the scones turned out really tasty and with a lovely texture. Served them at a tea party along with butter, cheese slices and a few jars of jam. All the guests really enjoyed them. Thanks, Debber. I'll be making these again.

Great scone recipe! I used a combo of whole wheat flour & whole wheat pastry flour. Thanks.

Not sure what happened, but for some reason my scones did not rise very much. Maybe it was because I was afraid to overmix the dough? They were kind of lumpy. They did have a good flavor though. I used craisins, white chocolate, and vanilla. I also liked the idea of bagging the scone dry ingredients ahead of time so I'll be using that idea in the future! Thanks Debber!

These are fantastic and so easy to make! Turned out light and fluffy on the inside yet slightly crunchy on the outside. Kept mine simple by adding just a little less than 1/2 cup of raisins. Not really sweet - just the way we like it! Served it with your Devonshire Cream for Scones and jam. Thank you, Debber! Made for PAC '07.

Lovely and versatile scones. I added 1 Tbsp of candied lemon peel and 1 Tbsp poppy seed, also I used 1 cup whole wheat flour to 1 cup of white. They bake up very nicely, mine had a crisp crust with a well baked interior that was still moist and very tender. A yummy taste that isn't too sweet. Marvelous with tea. I'll defiantly be trying these with other add-ins.
