A very nice scone for all us scone lovers out there. I used all raisins (no dried cranberries here), and enjoyed the tender crumb achieved in this recipe. A not too dry or sweet scone, allowing you to adjust sweetness with whatever you put on top.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. I used 1 cup of blueberries instead of the cranberries and raisins and they were so good. This is definitely going into the recipe file!

Very good scons CL! I whipped these up this morning, but made a mistake and added 3 tsp. of baking powder instead of 2 tsp, which I realized after I read the amounts again, my mistake anyway! I increased the sugar by 2 tbsp, and used half whipping cream, and half 2% milk, and omitted the cranberries and just used raisins. what a fantastic scone recipe! I love these with morning coffee, Thanks for sharing CL!.....Kitten:)

Excellent scone recipe. I have been craving a cranberry/orange scone, so I used all cranberries in this. I did add the zest of an orange and used 1/4 cup of white vinegar and freshly squeezed orange juice combined. I never realized scones were so easy to make. It was fun and delicious. Thank you for this keeper CountryLady!

What a delightful change for breakfast! I much prefer the cranberries to all raisins, and feel confident other fruits would also be good in it. I was unsure what 18%cream was, so I used about 3/4 C whipping cream and 1/4 C half & half. Since I didn't have unsalted butter I just cut back slightly on the amount of salt I added to the recipe. I believe DH and DS will want this again sometime.
