I thought this might be one of those recipes that sounds very strange but actually might be delicious, but I was wrong. They did not taste bad - just weird. Now I know why our local bakery does not sell them.
Due to ingredients that I had on hand, I substituted allspice with a pinch of cloves & a heaping 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, sour milk with buttermilk, shortening with butter & yogurt with sour cream. It all worked, was a little wetter but most excellent.
I had to cook a little longer but they are very good....
These were great. They were soft and fluffy. I tweaked the spices a bit (I didn't have allspice on hand, sub. cinnamon), but I am thinking that these would be great as savory scones and am going to omit most of the sugar next time.
These are good. I used a small glass and pressed out about 30 small scones (48 would really be itty bitty). These would be nice with a cinnamon-brown sugar dusting before baking or served with a cinnamon-brown sugar sauce (melted butter, cinnamon, sugar - all to taste). Yum!
Great scones.Turned out perfect and fluffy and nicely golden in colour! Thanks for the recipe. I'll be making them for Easter this year for sure!
Really great scones! Nice soft dough, veery easy to work with. Followed the recipe exactly and they came out great. Perfect with a little jam or jelly. Mine baked in 13 minutes. Thanks Nancy!
