These are wonderful when you split them in half while they are still hot and them spread with butter.

I found this same recipe in The Martha Stewart Cookbook, and made it yesterday. Overall, I really like the inclusion of molasses, and will use the basic recipe again for other variations with different add-ins like pecans, instead of blueberries. However, the dough was a bit dry, so I had to be very careful not to crush the blueberries when stirring them in, as they didn't really stick to the dough. I used a bit of vinegar with regular milk in place of the buttermilk. I also put the dough in a round deep dish stone baking pan, cut it into eighths, and then baked it (for 15 minutes total), instead of dealing with rolling it out & cutting small pieces - I had nice, big scones! Finally, I added a confectioner's sugar/milk glaze to the final product, just because I like glazes - yum!
