I have been using this recipe for years with some modifications. I substitute dried blueberrys for raisins, I use the rind of a whole lemon for zest, and squeeze the lemon juice to use in place of the water. In addition, I add 1/2 pecans for an extra surprise. I call them Lemon Blueberry Pecan scones. They are sooo delicious. I will take the advice of another next time and make 2 smaller circles as the best part for me is the yummy crispy edges. These do not disappoint! TI love that I don't have to mess will cutting in butter. They are also a lot lower in fat than some of the other recipes that come in at over 12g of fat per serving.
