      Sure and I tried some of these "wee treats" today. I love molasses and these hit the spot. I made a double batch and was careful about adding the milk, it didn't require all of it. I converted the measurements from weight to volume. 8 ounces flour=1 1/2 cups..... 2 ounces butter=1/4 cup...... 1 ounce sugar=2 1/2 tablespns.. Thanks for this great recipe Miller... Lee

      Really good! My Scottish friend was talking about treacle scones, and I had to make some to give them a try:) Served warm with butter and homemade strawberry/cranberry jam. Thanks CoolMonday for providing measurement conversions! I also used Self-Rising Flour. Worried that the salt in the recipe with the salt in the self-rising sub would be too much but it was fine. Used Lyle's Black Treacle and my scones were much darker than the picture. If you're subbing molasses, you need a heavier organic or blackstrap molasses to be most similar to black treacle, not the regular commercial brands like Grandma's. I only needed about 3 1/2 oz. milk. Will make these again!

      Very yummy, but the dough was so wet, even without all the milk. I ended up making drop scones instead. The taste was great!!!! I used cane syrup because that is what I had on hand. Will make again.
