These scones had a nice flavor. The instructions were a little confusing, cream is listed twice in the ingredients but the instructions only mention it one time. I added 1 cup of cream with the egg and extracts, and after mixing, I decided not too use the other 3/4 cup of cream. I felt it would be too runny and wouldn't form a dough. Also, I patted out the dough, on a sprayed baking sheet, into a 3/4" thick circle. I then cut the circle of dough into 8 wedges, separated them slightly, and baked them as directed. The chopped butterscotch pieces on the top of the scones started to get dark halfway through the baking time, so I covered them lightly with foil. My family enjoyed these scones and I will be making them again. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
