      I was looking for a different scone recipe to use at work (lost my old one) and decided to give this recipe a shot, and I was truly glad I did! These scones are light, slightly crumbly yet firm enough to hold together, and stay moist for quite awhile (we put them out on a "help yourself" snack area and they're still excellent 12 room-temp hours later. The recipe has just enough sugar to make keep them from being biscuity, yet (depending on your additions) aren't sweet. I like to add some grated white chocolate (like 1/4 cup per this recipe which adds richness and some extra vanilla depth along with sweetness), and then I've added : pecans, walnuts, raisins, dried cran and blue berries, lemon/orange zest and extract, cinnamon, nutmeg....on and on! This is a great base scone recipe...scone lovers would be foolish to pass this one up! It's also extremely simple and very quick to make (which I appreciate as I try to squeeze it into my already-busy work day). Merci, Gingerbee, for giving this old cook dog a new trick!

      Scones? What scones? I had to steal a bite from my son's scone. They are not only very easy to make, but DELICIOUS! The only problem is, I need to make more next time! Thank you so very much for posting this recipe. It is going to become one of our favourites.

      These were very good. I needed a quick and easy scone recipe that didn't include butter or eggs. I just wanted to use up some cream I had leftover from making ice cream. This was perfect. I made half the batch plain, and the other half with raisins and a dash or cinnamon and nutmeg. These were fantastic. Thank you.
