Mmmmmm, lovely scones that are ideal for Fall. I used Gingerbread Spice Blend in them and they were delicious. Really top drawer recipe that made beautiful fluffy light scones with a great crisp thin crust. So yummy with vanilla butter. Thanks Deb for a real keeper of a scone recipe. :D
I love scones & these may well be my all-time favorite of the genre. Your spice blend & this recipe combined to make a taste treat that I cannot resist. I made 1 chg to the recipe & added an extra tbsp of brown sugar hoping for a bit more sweetness & the result was perfect. This recipe will be among the 1st things I make for family members who visit here & is certain to conjure memories of my Mom. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-).
