These were light and fluffy, but not very tasty .. I also thought they needed more sugar .. I don't think I will make them again ..
Light and tasty, but I felt they lacked flavor the first time I made them. Second time I upped the lemon zest, and a bit more sugar, not much though. For appearance I added some striped glaze to mine. That can be done simply by mixing milk or orange juice with confectioner's sugar to get a good consistency. This adds alot to the initial presentation of the scones. Finally I made 12 scones with this recipe, instead of 8; they feel more correctly sized that way, previously they were too big. Cheers!
WONDERFUL!!! We all LOVED these. Mine looked nice and golden brown and so pretty...better than that photo...next time I'll take pics...I left out the zest because I didn't feel like dealing with it. Next time I'll do 2 things different. 1. I'll do the dry stuff with the butter in a food processor as I find it easier to cut in the butter this way. 2. I'll transfer the 6 inch square to the pan b4 I cut it and then cut. I found it very hard to transfer them to the baking pan. I'll cut and leave it in the square and then cut again when they come out of the oven. All in all these were so good. The whole family loved them and I'll make them again and again. Maybe I'll try different berries too and I love the idea someone had to add white chocolate chips. Thank you so much for posting!
Best scones ever! These are so moist and delicious. Will try other add-ins too - cheddar and bacon is on for tomorrow. I never liked scones till I tried this recipe - Yummy!
Great recipe! Easy to make and delicious. Forgot to put the sugar and still tasted great. Also used regular milk because I did not have any cream. DEFINITELY TO BE REPEATED. Thanks for posting.
The dough was a bit sticky; next time I'd put more flour on the board when I scraped the dough out of the bowl. I did not add sugar to the top but did brush with milk. These scones were delicious, not too sweet with just the right amount of brightness from the lemon zest (I used more than it called for) and the right tartness from the blueberries. I'd definitely make these again!
Great recipe! I used half-and-half and splashed on a little lemon glaze.
Thanks for sharing
Made your recipe using all your suggested ingredients, plus a teaspoon of chia seeds (my attempt to make white flour healthy). Placed the dough in a pie plate and patted it down with floured hands, brushed with cream and sprinkled with sugar and cut them into 8 servings and baked for about 25 minutes. Scones are a biscuit with fruit or other ingredients added. They are not supposed to be sweet as they are bread. I know we see them at all the coffee shops with tons of sugar and frosting on top but those are more like dessert.
Overall, good recipe. Straightforward and easy to fix. I liked the taste, but my family, inexplicably, was only lukewarm. The average rating from the family was 3.33 stars.
Spot on reproduction. Pretty much perfect. Might try buttermilk next time.
