These are great! I have a child with an egg allergy so I am always looking for egg free baked goods and these were fantastic. I have made them 3 times. Instead of using raisins I have substituted frozen mixed berries, or chopped almonds with a little almond extract and they were delicious. I also used butter instead of lard as I wasn't sure what that was?
These were REALLY good. I had a little problem with the dough -- baking is not my strong point -- but the scones came out great and I enjoyed them with butter and strawberry preserves. Thanks PrimQuilter for the recipe. Made for FALL 2008 PAC.
