    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are even fantastic without the butterscotch chips! You can even use chocolate chips, coconut, dried fruit such as raisins, dried cherries etc. Use only very cold unwhipped whipping cream for this scone recipe, milk will not produce the same effect. These are really good!

      These scones were phenomenal! Decadently delicious, light and fluffy. I coarsely chopped the butterscotch chips before adding them and also added about 1/8 cup more whipping cream because the dough seemed a little dry. I had to cover the top of the scones with foil during the last 5-7 minutes of baking time to keep them from getting too brown (something about the butterscotch maybe?) So delicious...they were gone in less than a day!
