These are AMAZING! I have never made scones before, nor am I a big fan. It was my girlfriend's Bday and this is what she requested I bake. Well, needless to say, she had a Happy Birthday thanks to the wonderful scones and lemon curd!! The second time I baked them, I used my large cookie dough scooper and made perfectly sized scones!
Delightful! I used 2% milk and salted butter (I didn't add the salt, then). They came out deliciousâ€”thank you!
Mmmm - delicious. My husband is an avid tennis fan so I decided to make these for "Breakfast at Wimbledon". Served them warm, cut in half with Devon cream and strawberry jam. It was to die for ... sooo good. And we just may do that if we eat them, that way, more than once a year. But it's nice to really indulge sometimes. Thanks Kirste for a great keeper.
These were great! I made them for breakfast & added orange rind for flavor. They were light & ummm delicious. I used 18% cream coz that's what I had on hand. I don't know if the 35% would make them any better. Certainly, I will make these again. Thanks for sharing
I was going to make my regular scone recipe, which is quite good, but I decided to browse the site to see if I could make them differently. Your recipe grabbed my attention as it uses heavy cream, which I don't normally use. As it happened, I had some heavy cream left over and thought, why not give this a try. I'm glad I did. I followed your recipe and added in some raisins and they turned out wonderful. I think I'll use some fresh cranberries (marinated in a light sugar syrop) for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thank you for your recipe post!
I made this recipe Vegan by replacing the butter with Earth Balance marge and the egg+whipping cream with almond milk, a tablespoon of cornstarch or arrowroot, and half a cored and peeled apple whizzed up in the blender. It gave the mix the right consistency, and the scones came out of the oven beautifully delicate and airy tasting. Another great variation: knead in some lavender petals before baking, and drizzle with lemon glaze after they're cooled. Very elegant :)
as my girlfriend said when i made them this morning, "these are perfect!". follow the recipe exactly and you can't go wrong. a real keeper.
I just made these for breakfast and they are so delicious. Very light and airy, not too sweet and with a good flavour. Thank you so much for the easy and delectable recipe
Very light and yummy! I will be making these again.
