Oh my gosh, these are yummy! I love scones both sweet and savory and I've made a lot of then over the years. This recipe is top of the line, everything it perfectly balanced and works together like a well played symphony. They raise tall and have that more-ish taste, as soon as you finish one you want more. This recipe will most certainly be made again. Made for Realtors Bonus Win in Photo Tag.
