I've attempted scones one other time and the recipe did not call for sifted flour - the outcome was a disaster! The sifted flour made all the difference I believe in keeping these scones "sconey"<br/><br/>These scones are barely sweet but the orange notes sweeten up the blackberries. <br/>I doubled the recipe with no problems.
