These scones are great! They are flaky and crunchy with a delecate fruity flavour. I loved the addition of cornmeal as it gave the scones a really nice texture. Very filling and great for breakkie.
I made half the recipe ending up with 6 chunky round scones and 1 tiny scone.
Ill definitely make these again. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your recipe with us, Charlotte!
Made and reviewed for Potluck Tag Game August 2010.
This was delicious. I made it per the ingredients list and it was very light and flaky. I was lazy and just pressed it out into a big circle and cut wedges in it almost all of the way through so it would be easy to pull apart when finished. I will definitely make this again.
I made these for ZWT III. More like a biscuit and quite TASTY! I did make one important change to the ingredient list. When researching scone recipes, I noticed most recipes use an EGG, so rather than use 2/3 cup milk as stated in this recipe, I used 1 beaten egg and enough milk to equal 2/3 cup. My scones were moist and tender. The next time, I will also add a full CUP of Craisins, because you want at least one piece in every single bite!
