My daughter tried this recipe & they were really hard not eatable. We had to throw them away. I will try to make this same recipe myself to see if I will get different results. But as for now I will only give it 2 star because several ingredients were wasted on this recipe.
Ok...now..this..is fantastic. superb. wonderful. I rarely do long reviews, but this deserves it. First of all i used really ripe gorgeous berries, which adds to the sweetness..sometimes i think we forget what they taste like ruby red all the way through. Secondly I subbed Splenda for the sugar and it worked with no issues. As to sweetness, yes a glaze might help for those who want it, when warm sprinkle it with rock sugar. not sure what its called but the big grains of white sugar. However scones are not meant to be really sweet on their own. Traditionally they are served with clotted or whipped cream and jam if plain (these don't need jam lol). So I whipped up a little sweetened whipped cream and had a marvelous afternoon treat.
This is a great recipe! My DH loved them and so did I. I used MarshaD's suggestion and added "Powdered Sugar Glaze". These had great flavor and I can't wait to make more of them when strawberries are in season.
The scones mixed up fine but I had to add a couple extra pats of butter to get the 'oatmeal' texture. Baked for 25 minutes which was right on. From the other reviews I added a few extra tablespoons of sugar and about 3/4 cups of strawberries. I still would have liked them a bit sweeter. They may need a little sweetened/flavored butter or the glaze that another reviewer used. They looked great. Made for the PRMR tag game.
This was a great recipe! I think next time I will add 3/4 cup of strawberries and a bit more of sugar in the dough. Although I did sprinkle sugar on top of the scones prior to baking, I think it could have been a bit more sweeter. Overall this is a keeper! Thanks for sharing....made this for Flour Power event in the photo forum.
I am so happy! This was my first try at making scones and they were excellent. I used all-purpose flour in place of the cake flour. I wanted to add a glaze to them after they came out of the oven, so I found Powdered Sugar Glaze to use. They were DELICIOUS! My Dh loved them, he loves strawberries. I believe maybe the next time I may add a bit more strawberries. Made this for the "Flour Power" Bread,Rolls, Scones and Biscuit challenge. Your directions were very helpful! Thank you for sharing the recipe! :)
Great scone for the subs that I made. I wanted this to be a bit heathier so I used part splenda, margine, skim milk, and a bit of whole wheat flour and white flour. Margine made them spread a bit I think, but other than that they were great tasting. May add a little less milk next time since they were very sticky. Excellent recipe for scones
