Delicious scones! I made 1/2 the recipe for the two of us, which was perfect. I used sugar instead of Splenda, and cinnamon chips instead of raisins. These were so easy to make and are so light and fluffy! As one reviewer mentioned, the dough is very soft, so instead of adding flour to be able to cut shapes, I gently formed it into a circle and cut it into quarters. Well, not exaclty "cut", but marked the lines anyways, and when it came out of the oven, it naturally broke into four triangles. I sprinkled it with demara sugar before putting them in the oven, too. Thanks for posting, Annacia! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
