    Mysterygirl's Note:

    This is a low fat version of scones that is very tasty. If you can't find the dried plum puree at your store, combine 8 oz pitted dried plums with 6 Tbsp water in blender, processing until smooth. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. 1 serving = 2 Starch, 1 Fruit

      Hard to imagine that this is a low fat scone. I used prunes, non sugared dried cranberries. Very tasty. Thanks for putting in the diabetic food values. These will be made again Thanks MG

      Very GOOD!!! I used dried cherries. Gave them nice sweet-tart flavor. I also used Splenda, which worked fine! Thanks for posting this!

      My these were good. I used butter instead of margarine, simply because that's what I have. Also used white sugar for the same reason. The scones were so tender and flavorful. Initially, I was worried about using a full tablespoon of baking powder but the rise on these was just perfect, not too high - not too flat. Will certainly make these agian,and again, and agian. Thanks.
