I had never baked scones before, but I had all of the ingredients on hand and just had to try them. I am really pleased with how they turned out. Light, sweet, and very tasty. Thanks MarieAlice!
These were delicious -- very easy to make, too. I did have to bake them a bit longer (around 28 min) to get them brown. My husband loved them!
