I used a full cup of craisins (moistened with 2T of water in the microwave) then let them cool down to room temp. I, too added an egg and then enough milk to equal 2/3 c. milk. They turned out great! Now I'm asked to make them as an after school snack, at least once a week. I'd say that is a success! These are multi-purpose yummy bites! And healthy. I'm going to try adding even more craisins to the mix, since they are good for those who have frequent UTI's and such.
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!

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.
