I thought these scones were fantastic. Really nice, flavorful, and totally yummy. I especially appreciated just the right amount of sweetness -- perfect balance for the oats, without making it sugary. The cream topping is really good, too.
These were pretty good, although I think that 450 F is too hot of an oven temperature. I baked them for the time specified. My batch got a little scorched on the edges before the centers were done, this gave the raisins a little bit of a burnt flavor. If I make these again I would turn the oven temp down to 400 F. Thanks for the recipe.
Very good flavor but a bit crumbly. Followed the recipe exactly but the "dough" was very soft and barely held together. Needed a spatula to lift them from the floured board to the baking sheet... each wedge of dough was quite fragile. The scones didn't rise and the bottoms were a bit brown (oven's fault) but were tasty. Most likely won't make again but did enjoy them.
I have not made the recipe provided here by Jane*in*RI but I have experienced these delightful scones served at the Scottish Lion Country Inn in No. Conway, NH many, many times; served at their Sunday brunch. Excellent..!!! Easy to make. I highly recommend these scones. Thank you for sharing the recipe as I did not have this one. However, I do have their Scottish Oat Cakes receipe. Also a delight. It was very disapointing when I learned this wonderful country inn had closed it doors after being open for many years. Their Scottish cuisine was superb.
