I can't give an honest good rating because the recipe has inconsistencies. It calls for 1 c milk and 1 c butterscotch chips but it doesn't say when to add them and when I made mine it came out tasting ok but it looked more like I had baked pancakes. I will try to make it and tweak it a little. If anyone else tries this and makes it and it comes out well then please let me know. I love scones! Hopw this helps someone else.
