Yummy little things! These were so easy and also quick to make and tasted fabulous! I used raisins instead of the blueberries and real butter instead of the margarine, cause thats what I had on hand and the scones came out so fluffy and tasty. Very good plain, but spread with some jam as well. I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar on top before baking, which went really well with the raisins. Id also luv however to try these with fresh blueberries once they are in season. Thanks so much for sharing this winner of a recipe with us, catercow! Oh, just a note: I only got 6 scones out of the full recipe.
