On the whole I liked these. Made a half recipe for 6 small scones that came out a lovely size. I found the dough to be a bit dry and needed to add another Tbsp of milk. That might well have been due to the fact that I use "porridge" oats that have flex seed, oat bran and a few other such things mixed in. Need to mention that I used Splenda for the sugar. The earthy flavor of the rosemary was a nice counterpoint but I found it a bit heavy for my taste. I would lessen the amount by a quarter to a half next time. Made for Healthy Choices.
Loved the combo of orange & rosemary in these scones, & when served warm with some orange butter, THEY ARE SOOO GREAT! And, by the way, they're also great topped with a homemade cranberry sauce! Thanks, much for a wonderful treat! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Diabetes Awareness Month Tag Game]
