I made a half recipe (yield 7 large-sized scones), DH & I taste-tested 2 of them & I froze the other 5 for use early next mo when we will have visitors from the US. I skipped the opt raisins & nuts due to DH dietary restrictions. Mine was taste-tested warm from the oven (slathered w/butter) & DH ate his plain as a late nite snack. They were very flavorful & the texture was between a moist cake to a soft biscuit. We love scones & these are among our faves. Thx for posting this recipe for us.
I made these excellent scones this morning to be enjoyed with vanilla tea. Top marks all around. The recipe is easy and makes great fluffy scones. I skipped the nuts per DH's request and we both leisurely enjoyed them warm from the oven. Some things about retirement are so nice :D
