Made a batch of these today with the zest of two clementines as my mix in and they turned out fairly well. To finish them off, I made a glaze with the juice from the clementines and powdered sugar. They were a tad gummy while still warm after the recommended bake time, but when cooled they seem to have evened out texture-wise. I think I might have needed to bake them a minute or two long...next time. I already have some other ideas of how I want to utilize this recipe.
Oh My....I made these awesome scones for the My 3 Chefs 08 event. I split 1 recipe of the dough in 1/2 and mixed in Cinnamon chips into the 1st batch and milk chocolate chips into the 2nd. I overcooked them a wee bit but even so they are better than fancy coffee house scones. I will freeze these beauties and eat 1 (or 2?) every workday morning on my long commute with a big hot travel mug of fresh, strong black coffee. HEAVEN!!!!
