This is my go to recipe for scones?..period! I love it, my whole family, extended family loves it! I always make a mock devonshire cream to pair with it?..delicious! I think it is plenty sweet, and I just use regular butter, and it turns out fine! slightly thawed strawberries ( not in syrup) works fine too. Love this!

Sorry, I didn't care for this recipe at all. It wasn't sweet enough for us even with sprinkling sugar on top. I didn't care for the egg wash on top.....I would have preferred a glaze. I'm giving it 2 stars because I think others might like a less sweet scone. Reviewed for Zaar chef Alphabet Soup cooking tag game.
