this was a good recipe. I liked the texture, but maybe next time I'll use less cloves, because they're really pungent and I'm not a huge fan of that, as nice as cloves are... I might use a bit less sugar and more molasses next time. the scone was pretty sweet, but I really liked it and will be making it again, maybe just with a few changes! thanks for a great recipe- my family thought this was a keeper!
