These are good, but I must confess I didn't go as light as the recipe calls for. I used 2% milk, lowfat yogurt, and a real egg. Easy to make and tasty! Reviewed for ZWT4.

Yummy! Right off the bat, let me say that I substituted fresh blueberries for the dried cranberries, since the season just started and I can't get enough blueberries! This is a lovely scone recipe, not too sweet at all. The batter comes out rather wet, but baked up beautifully. I used turbinado sugar to coat the tops rather than brown sugar. Made this for the Canadian portion of ZWT4. Thanks, Charlotte!
