This recipe is Great. Made them for my church supper and they eat them up. Also tried with 1 cup coconut in place of canberries and orange. put coconut on top. and a little powered suger glaze. I used my mellon baller and they cooked up Great in about 15 min. Going to have a English Tea and will make these again. Gonna try Lemon and poppy seed. Got to try this user friendly recipe. Enjoy!

Excellent scones. I didn't have any oranges so I used lime zest. The change was noticeable but still very tasty. My only fault with the recipe was that the scones were dry but many people feel that scones should be dry and crumbly.

These scones were simply fantastic! They completely exceeded my expectations for flavor and texture. Take the author's advice and get the orange-flavored dried cranberries from Trader Joe's - it adds an extra bit of delicious orangey flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and baked for 16 minutes. Perfect!

I wanted a buttermilk scone recipe but I didn't have cranberries or orange peel. So, I just switched those ingredients for walnut bit and a dash or cinnamon and nutmeg. Oh, My Gosh! Thank you for this recipe! It turned out better than I expected! And it doesn't need eggs! Thank you so much!

Yummy scones! I used Smart Balance for the butter, and only 1/2 cup of it. I knew it would work well since I have used even less in other scone recipes. I kneaded this about 6 times for it come together before moving it to the baking sheet. I also separated my wedges just slightly, so it would make it easier to pull them apart later (they do rise back into each other). I really liked the flavor, and the crunch of the glaze.

Awesome! Really great holiday season flavors. I want to make these for Thanksgiving or Christmas breakfast. I left off the cinnamon on top, not sure if I was going to like those flavor combinations. But they were really incredible, especially right out of the oven! Heat them up if you don't eat them right away.

Its my first time making scones and my mom does not eat anything that has butter in it so i wanted to know if it would still turn out as good as everyone described if i used coconut oil instead of butter? If yes, how much oil should be substituted for butter?

This recipe is just what I've been looking for. I've been trying to find one similar to the ones I buy at the Wildflower bakery and these are the closest I've found. Excellent!
