Marvelous scones. As a diabetic I needed to trim the fats and sugar. I used Splenda for all of the sugar except for the light sprinkling on top. I replaced the butter with 1/2 the ask for amount of a heart healthy margarine and the other half was applesauce. I used skim milk and fat free sour cream. They turned out light and tender inside with a wonderful crisped top. I enjoyed mine with a cup of Darjeeling tea. This is a recipe that I will use again!
I really wanted to make scones but all I had in the cupboard was almonds, so I substituted along with 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract and they turned out great. Can't wait to try them with hazelnuts (and maybe some dried cranberries) next time. Easy and tasty recipe.
Very good recipe. Scones are light & nutty. Enjoyed immensely. Looking forward to adapting.
