Dill Sour Cream Scones

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

I read cookbooks like library books. I found this today while reading through a cookbook I have had for almost 10 years. I haven't tried it yet, but plan to try it in the very near future. I think these would be wonderful with a warm bowl of soup.

Top Review by ReeLani

I made these recently to have with some soup. I love dill and so was looking forward to them. I found the texture, however, to be unlike any scone I've ever made before and not really to my taste. I think that's because of the 2 eggs in the recipe, something not normally found in scones. They were somewhere between a muffin and a biscuit. Though the dill flavor was nice, that texture was the deciding factor in my giving a rare 2 star review. If you don't normally care for scones, this might be the scone recipe for you.
