This was the absolute first time I had ever eaten "a" scone, so I didnt really know what to expect. I was between a biscuit and a cake.... It's not overly sweet...just sweet enough. Thanks for the recipe.

oooooooo YUM! These were so good. And so easy. Why did I wait so long to try making scones? These even impressed my anti-carb hubby!
