      I used the food processor to mix the dry ingredients with the butter. And then put the dough in a circle and cut in 8 pieces. Great taste and texture. Thanks Tasty Tidbits :) Made for all you can cook buffet

      These are wonderful! (They don't even need any butter or jam on them!)

      Delicious! I wondered how much lemon flavor they'd have with only a little zest in the actual scone, but they were really quite wonderful! I doubled the recipe as I was making this for work and needed more than eight. It was impossible to get all of the dry ingredients combined into the liquid so I had to add a little more milk... maybe another 1/4 cup. I rolled these out into a circle on a cutting board dusted with only the dry scone ingredients that weren't completely absorbed into the dough (two circles, actually, since I'd doubled the recipe) and then cut them into wedges like more traditional scones. Also, I ended up baking them 20 minutes in order to get them done (not sure if that's because I doubled the recipe or because I used an insulated cookie sheet, or my oven's a little off). Then I served them with balsamic strawberries -- my own take on strawberry shortcake. FANTASTIC!
