    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    A buttery-rich scone is nothing more than a glorified biscuit—made even more delicious with sweet and savory twists. From Southern Living's facebook page -- Easy, Irresistible Scones; originally published in Southern Living, December 2010.

      Really grand scones. I used frozen cranberries in place of the dried as I like them better. The pistachio's were a very nice change from walnuts or pecans. The texture is lovely, soft on the inside with a light crunch on the outside. Relax with a scone and a cup of coffee or tea. Made for Photo Tag.
