Top Review by Sydney Mike

Would be very happy making these very tasty scones again & again ~ THEY'RE WONDERFUL! I did manage to give away a couple, but for the most part they were eaten right here at home, for breakfast, for snacks, for lunch! I really liked the combo of cherry & pistachio (plus the FULL topping of sugar I somehow managed to give each of them before baking)!
