      too much flour, consistency is not right, cup and a half of flour at most is probably a better bet.

      WOW....these are delicious scones. I was reluctant to use shortening. I love to bake with butter, just because I love the flavor it adds. But, I decided to give the shortening a try and they came out PERFECT! Light and tender. I did refrigerate the shortening before cutting it in and only used 1 1/2 cups of flour. I did bake mine about 1/2 an hour. I think my oven temp is off. I know I'll make these again. Thanks so much for posting the recipe.
