      Super TASTY and very FLUFFY scones! They were so easy and quick to put together and made for a wonderful breakfast treat this morning. I made some of them without the sugar and topped them with grated cheese before baking, which was really nice as well. These scones have a wonderful texture and a delicate not overly sweet taste. I made the full batch and got 10 big scones out of it. Thanks so much for sharing this gem of a recipe, I'm Pat! I will surely make it again! Made and reviewed for Every Day is a Holiday Tag Game March 2009.

      Delicious scones/biscuits!!! So quick and easy using the self-raising flour. I too, didn't add the sugar as was serving with a sweet fruit salad. I cut the recipe to serve 4 and that worked out perfectly. Thanks for sharing I'mPat. Made for PRMR tag.
