These were a nice light scone. I used splenda instead of sugar to make it diabetic. I also squeezed the clementine that I used for zest into my 1.5 cup container and then filled the rest with buttermilk (taking cues from Kree's review). Easy to make with a subtle flavor. Good with a bit of butter.

These scones have a very subtle flavor. My family enjoyed them, but we all agreed that they need more orange flavor, since it was almost undetectable. I would like to make these again and try replacing a bunch of the buttermilk with orange juice. This is a great base recipe, I just feel like it needs a little something else!
