This was so easy to make and my husband loved it! I did add about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar to the topping amd it was great :)

My mom has made these for years (she found it in TOH as well) and passed it on to me. I thought scones were hard to make and turned out dry and crumbly, but these scones changed my mind! They are absolutely fabulous and I would recommend them for any first-time scone maker. Thanks for posting it and saving me the trouble. :)

I made a couple of addtions... Since it wasnt exactly what I wanted. Didn't really care for the recipe.. I guess its a good basic recipe that you can mold to fit your desires though. They tasted like I had used bisquick mix.. which I could have.. but thats not what I was wanting. I put 1/3 cup sugar in the mix as well as a cup or so of dried cranberries. And just dropped 8 of them on a cookie sheet instead of all that rolling and cutting (Since I don't have a rolling pin). And I had to cook them about 10 minutes longer than stated. Theyre just 'OK'. =)
