Delicious and simple to make! As suggested in another review, I substituted 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of all-purpose flour to make the recipe a bit healthier. Otherwise I made it as directed, and the results were wonderful!
These are so very delicious! I had some BEAUTIFUL blackberries from the farmer's market to use, and DH requested scones. I don't consider myself a good scone maker, but this was easy to follow. The only difficulty I had was with the kneading; my dough was too wet. This could be b/c I used powdered buttermilk. The final product was wonderful though, and is definitely a keeper. I did sub 1/2 ww flour to give them a bit more "tooth", just based on personal preference. Thanks for posting, loveleesmile!
Sorry we didn't care for these
