Very easy to make. The prep time and cooking time are right on. These were exactly what I was looking for. They are light and fluffy although they were better on the day they are made as opposed to the next day. They seemed heavier and, of course, not crunchy on the top. I did not heat them again so maybe that would help on day 2....the only change I made was to use all currants instead of the cranberry/raisin mix. Will definitely make again.

Easy and awesome recipe. I added 1/2 cup cherry infused cranberries and 1/2 tsp almond extract. I served the scones with devonshire cream (4 oz cream cheese, 1/4 c. sour cream, 2 T sugar, and 1/2 tsp almond extract). To die for! My husband wanted the leftovers for dessert in the evening.

These are GREAT! Easy to make and the recipe is very flexible. I used 2/3 cup raisins, added 1/4 cup walnuts and add many shakes of cinnamon to the recipe. Yumbo!

This was VERY easy to make. I am the kind of girl who likes to improvise, so I used half whole wheat flour (white whole wheat, by King Arthur Flour) and I left out the raisins (to please one picky eater). The kids gobbled all 12 within maybe 3 hours and nobody seemed to notice the whole wheatiness...

Easy and fool-proof. My kind of recipe. I used 1/2 cup dark chocolate and 1/3 cup walnut pieces in place of cranberries and raisins. Instead of sugar, I sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar mixture.

This is one of the best drop scone recipes we've tried. Flavor and consistency were great. We made some substitutions because our kids are picky. We dropped the raisins, could not find our carnberries, and were out of chocolate chips! SO,... we added 1/2 c of butterscotch chips and raw pecans (they toasted while cooking)---and the result was FABULOUS! Thanks for a great basic recipe and a fabulous NEW YEAR'S DAY breakfast. We served the scones with fresh grapefruit and eggs over easy! Holly Albuquerque, NM
