      The only reason I gave this 4 stars was because the dough was very hard to work with (everything else was 5 stars). The dough was extremely sticky and even though I floured the countertop and the rolling pin, the dough stuck to everything - including my fingers, which I floured. It was absolutely pointless to roll it out and cut it into wedges because when you went to pull up the piece to place on the cooking sheet, you mangled the piece beyond recognition. I pretty much ended up scrapping the pieces off the countertop and forming little blobs on the cooking sheet. However, this did NOT affect the taste of the scone one bit. They were DELICIOUS!!!! Since I don't know how to count or cut a circle into 12 equal pieces, I ended up cutting it into 16 pieces (still not equal) so they were a little on the small side. But, I was able to eat 2 scones for the price of 1. I normally find scones to be on the DRY side, which is why I hesitated on making this recipe. But these were the complete opposite. When they came out of the oven, I cut my scones in half and drizzled honey on top. They were YUMMY! Next time I'm not even going to bother rolling out the dough. Instead I'm going to drop the dough onto the cooking sheet by tablespoons and flatten them slightly with my fingers. I also want to add cranberries to them and maybe sprinkle some sugar on top before baking them. Thanks Dayla!

      It's excellent! Very easy to make and the scones turn out to be crispy outside and soft inside. I follow up to step no.5 then use spoons to scoop the mixture out to make small doughs. It is sticky so why use hands?? Add raisins makes it more delicious.

      good and easy, I doubled the sugar and used vanilla yogurt, then bushed coffee creamer on top and sprinkled sugar on it. I didn't need to double the sugar, I was worried it wouldn't be sweet enough but it was plenty sweet. Simple and easy, was sticky even with a little added extra flour I didn't roll it I just plopped clumps down on the pan.
