      These scones were quick and easy to make,plus they were REALLY tastey! We will deffinitely be making these again. Another review for these scones mentioned basting them with milk and sprikling them with sugar. I tried it and the scones came out of the oven with a really yummy, sweet crust on top! Can't wait to try some other variations!

      These are really yummy and can be made fast. I freeze the butter and grate it in and I use about 1/2 cup sugar.

      These scones turned out really well for me. I used to bake scones off and on before college, but got out of the habit, so I'm not entirely new to the process. I substituted 1 cup of white wheat pastry flour, bought from my local co-op, and brushed the tops with 2% milk and cinnamon sugar before baking. While I prefer my scones (and biscuits) to be on the side of undercooked, rather than overcooked, I do think that next time I'll keep these in the oven 15 minutes. I tried 12, put them back in for another 2, and they are still slighly underdone, IMHO. I used a scant 1/3 cup of sugar, and the scones are sweet enough to eat without embellishment beyond the cinnamon sugar topping (I cut them in half, to test the taste, and the bottom is as tasty as the top. They are extra delicious drizzled with honey, and I'm enjoying one wtih my Zen green tea with half 'n' half and honey as we speak. Thank you for sharing!
