I added one teaspoon of vanilla paste to the recipe and followed the rest to the letter. These scones were fantastic! Thanks for posting.

i wanted so bad to try this recipe this weekend....does it really call for 2 1/2 cups of baking powder? This sound like way too much but i didnt want to waste the time if this was a typo on the recipe......i will check back another time to see if it has been corrected.....
