I made these scones mostly for DH because he likes chocolate chip scones. But I still like them :) It was easy to do. I used the food processor to mix the dry ingredients and the cold butter. They have a great texture. DH likes them a lot. Thanks KitchenCraftsnMore :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game
Very good basic scone recipe but it is still better to use BUTTERMILK rather than soured milk - you get a more moist scone with good texture. At least that is what I find. Thanks for a good recipe tho.
These were yummy and easy. I used sour milk in place of the buttermilk. I also added some toffee chips. I had to reduce the oven temp to 400 and bake for an extra 10 minutes. Thanks!
