Very nice scone recipe, a bit putzy with the preparation, but worth the effort in the end. Try dried cranberries in place of the 'cots, too--every bit as delish! Or chocolate chips or nuts. Mmm-mmm-good! A *Zaar Star* recipe!

These were a lot of work for not "the best" scones I've ever had. But they were good!

I liked how scones tasted on the first day right after baking. They got tough on the second day and I could definetely tell that they were low fat. For me it was good way to use up some extra yogurt and dried apricots.I probably will not make it again.

Very good! Turned out light and moist. I used Splenda and adjusted the baking time down, and skipped the sugar coating. I might double the apricots next time. Would also be good with dried cherries! Thanks, toni, for another winner!

Fabulous! I used fat free everything and Splenda in place of sugar. I topped them with Splenda and cinnamon. I used pacans for the nuts (I'm out of almonds) and used Bakery Cookie and Cake flavoring for the almond extract. They are moist and tender and they rise beautifully. Mine took 25 mins to bake even with the use of Splenda. These are some of the best scones I have ever had and I loved every crumb of fat free goodness.

I loved these scones! They have a nice almond flavor with flecks of sliced almonds throughout! I found that after a couple of days I could zap them for a few seconds in the micro and they were still delicious! Thanks for sharing Toni!

SOOOO GOOD!!! I love these scones. I used full fat sour cream and butter in mine, and they were superb! I served them with creme fraich instead of clotted creme and the contrast was perfect! Thanks.

Good, quick, easy. Took longer in my oven too. I added a bit of cinnamon to this and it is very good, I probably got in more apricots than the recipe asked for too...

These are wonderful scones, you'd never tell that they were low in fat!! Me and my husband like our baked goods more on the plain side so we didn't add the almonds, the almond extract or the dried fruit and loved them!! They are GREAT plain, or add some butter or jam!! They are moist, and have just the right amount of sweetness!:)
