    This recipe came from my Joy of Cooking. They are absolutely spectacular.I think I added a bit more sugar. Taste like excellent shortbread.

      Loved these scones & they got rave reviews from family & friends so I had to give credit where credit is due - Thanks Anne for such a simple, quick recipe. I cut back slightly on the sugar to 1/3 cup & added 1 1/2 teaspoons of pure vanilla to the egg/cream mixture. Also used raisins instead of currants & glazed the scones with egg mixed with a teaspoon of cream. A light coating of sugar added the perfect amount of sweetness. I also cut them smaller to yield 16 triangles & they baked on a silpat for 12 minutes. They didn't last very long.

      Had a tea party for four friends and made these. LOVED THEM! Just the right amount of taste. I followed another reviewers' suggestion and wrapped clear wrap around it and put it in the freezer, about 15 min later I brought it out, placed it on a cookie sheet and with the wrap still on top, flattened it out a bit and shaped it into a large circle. I then cut eight wedges and with a spatula seperated the scones out and baked. They toasted nicely and were such a treat fresh out of the oven. I am definitely going to me this again and again and again!!!! thank you for the simple and excellent recipe.

      Great recipe! These scones had lovely texture - soft and fluffy inside and golden on the outside. I find the trick to good scones is to knead the dough as little as possible, but for that to happen, the wet-to-dry ratio must be just right. This recipe gets it and the results are delicious!
