I have just made this recipe and it was a disaster! All of my measurements were accurate and I ended up with a soup-like consistency. I had to add several more cups of flour to get something like the dough that the recipe describes. The extra flour and stirring resulted in a tough and tasteless dough. I baked it anyway, just to follow through. The "scones" were so awful I threw the whole thing out! What a waste of my time and ingredients!

These were delightful! I like one reviewers idea of lemon icing and may try that next time. I liked the mildness of the lemon, but more lemon would be good too. I served these with steak and eggs for dinner. Very easy to make.
