This is a good recipe but I'm knocking it down a star because the recipe itself has some mistakes. The list of ingredients calls for 1 cup half and half, but in the recipe instructions the author refers to "1/2 c half and half". I used 1/2 cup and decided this was the correct amount. Furthermore the recipe calls for 1/3 cup sugar, but the author never indicates when it should be added. I did not end up adding the sugar and find that the scone is fine without it, although I am not sure everyone would agree. Lastly i would humbly suggest that recipes are a little easier to follow if the ingredients are listed in the order in which they are used. Thanks for a good recipe, these little fixes will make it more user-friendly! :) I'll look forward to making this again.

Delicious! Like the other reviewer, I would caution others to note that the amount of half and half in the dough should only be 1/2 cup. I made a couple of changes to suit what I had, but don't believe it changed the recipe. Used 3/4 cup of my Spirited Cranberry Apricot Sauce so omitted the orange zest and cinnamon. Patted the dough into a 8-9 inch circle on the baking sheet and scored with a knife. Baked about 18 minutes. The kids inhaled these for breakfast. I'll definitely make them again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
