I don't know if I can review this twice, but my friend made this recipe and here's her review. She added 1/2 cup frozen blueberries. "We LOVED the scones. Sooooo GOOD. I could eat these everyday. I must have this recipe. They were perfect, like a biscuit but sweeter. Yum, yum, yum!" I told her she had to sign up on Recipezaar :)
Wonderful. I've tried about a dozen scone recipes in the past year and this came closest to what I was looking for - a lighter, less crumbly scone. I added slightly more sugar as I like a sweeter scone.
Easy to make and so good. I used butter instead of margerine and I forgot to brush them with milk but may I tell you they came out perfect. I made them about 1" thick. They were crisp outside and lovely & soft inside. Thanks Miller
