Easy to make, moist and flavorful! My husband loves these. He says they taste like a cinnamon roll and I say that they are MUCH easier and quicker to make than cinnamon rolls. Try them! This is one of the ultimate comfort foods, in my opinion.

These are wonderful...I just took them out of the oven and let them cool a as I write this...I am eating ;D Lovely texture and great cinnamon flavour. I used Honan cinnamon from China. These are great when you are craving cinnamon buns...but not a lengthy process!!! These need more than 5 stars. Thank you for a great recipe that will be made lots.

I regreat having to give this a lower rating than I normally do. The scones just turned out very mealy and didn't really *taste* whole lot like anything. I did use 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour, as suggested. Amd I omitted the pecans. But other than that, made the recipe as directed. Sorry, I just didn't care for it.

Great scone recipe- easy to make and delicious to eat. My hubby is an extremely picky eater, especially when it comes to sweets of any kind. These were perfect- not too sweet, enough to fill a craving and great with a cup of coffee for breakfast. He had two before I had time to get the 2nd batch out of the oven!
