The scones are fabulous, They baked up tall, tender and perfect. I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 a cup of white in the half recipe I made and skipped the sugar. I would increase the salt and herbs next time. I made the onion topping as ask with the exception of cutting the sugar in half and I still found it too sweet for my personal taste. I thought that there was a very good chance that it would blend in well with the onions and I know that most folks will really love it. The recipe is faultless and works like a charm. The ingredient amounts and timing are right on (I baked at 400 as my oven runs hot). Really a top notch recipe for workability, scone quality and for 99.9% of the reviewers topping flavor.
