This recipe is so versatile. I've have some time substituted Blueberry, for different types of berries like Cranberries, and as of yesterday I made it w/ chocolate chips & with the zest w/1 tsp of cinamon. The flavor throughout with a nice tang from the Blueberry. They was a bit heavy - So I think I adding a little more baking powder could solve this for me. A very appealing scone recipe that is, made in almost no time at all. I make the full recipe so that I can freeze some to have on hand for a quick breakfast. I will always use this recipe in the future. Did it for PRMR 2013..... Thank you!!! Happy Cooking to y'all ! Grpa

A scones. I made 6 scones and they are perfect. I used frozen blueberries (of which I have lots) in place of the dried ones (of which I have none). These are so moist and tender they almost melt as you eat one but the raw sugar topping I used makes a wonderful crunchy top crust. I used Splenda in place of sugar and a heart healthy margarine. I love the pecan and blueberry combo.

I really enjoyed these scones. I found them easy to make and were very delicious. I only made one change. I used fresh Blueberries. When I ate the scones, the blueberries would explode in my mouth with a wonderful flavor! You should definitely make these scones with fresh blueberries.
