      These scones were very tender inside and golden on the outside; just as I would have hoped. They were not real sweet but had a nice delicate flavor. Because of the unsalted butter, I felt they were just a little bland. Next time I plan on adjusting the salt. Dried sweetened cranberries would work very nicely as well as the raisins. The less the dough is handled the more tender the end result.
