We loved these scones, in fact everyone loved these scones, I need to make more!!! great texture, melt in the mouth. I used a mixture of dried fruit including dried apples and apricots, was very nice. Baked beautifully and they keep well. Thank you, great recipe, made for QUEST 2015 (Canada)

I love scones and these were fabulous! They were light and rich, moist but not gummy. I used Trader Joe's Orange Flavored Cranberries for the dried fruit. I ate them with lingonberry jam and whipped cream, while my DH kept it simple with just butter. These will definitely become a fixture in my repertoire of scones!

I made this lovely recipe is a half amount with a mix of dried cranberries and dried apple that I chopped. They have a light, tender inside and a lovely crust to make a great bite. I haven't made scones in to long a time and what a perfect welcome back this recipe was. Made for Culinary Quest 2015.
