I've been experimenting with coconut oil, so I substituted half of the margarine with coconut oil. I also found them to be a bit dry, so next time I shall use a bit less flour or a bit more milk I think. The flavour and texture of these scones was delightful though. Sandy like a pastry.
Considering scones are generally a butter heavy item, these are very tasty. I have found them to be a little dry, so I always sprinkle a few extra raisins into the dough, then press two or three raisins into the wedges right before sticking them in the oven.
Very good. Nice and short, like a scone should be. I changed the recipe to make Coconut Cinnamon Scones by substituting coconut for the oats. I divided the recipe into 6 wedges for cafe-size portions.
Today I joined RecipeZaar and have just made these yummy scones. The first one straight out of the oven was a wee bit crumbly; so I wrapped the rest in a tea towel to cool and have just eaten my second one, which wasn't crumbly at all. I might even try a little grated apple in them next time.
I was very impressed by these and so were all my roommates! They are light and airy and crumbly but still moist. I think they would be good with chocolate chips too. Yum, thank you!
