"Delicious! My only changes were to use butter ( I can't imaging using margarine) and topped with sugar crystals instead of powdered sugar. I used slightly defrosted cranberries which I cut in half before adding to the dough, I might increase the amount next time because we really enjoyed the flavor and there was room for more. I cut them scone style, and taste and texture wise they are more scone then biscuit. Thanks for a great recipe Sharon. Made for PRMT."
"Mmmmm, what a pleasure these are. I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour and 3/4 of unbleached flour, Splenda in the scone dough instead of sugar and a drizzle of orange extract since I didn't have an orange to zest. For the top of the cut scones I used melted margarine and granulated sugar sprinkled on. Dee-licious."
"This is the first time I made biscuits that were not from a can marked Pillsbury. What a treat and they were so easy to make. My kids did not care for the tartness of the cranberries. This just means they won't be wiped out in less than 24 hours and my wife and I can enjoy eating more than one. Thanks again for sharing"
"Delicious! I made very few changes, I used vanilla yogurt & since that was sweetened, I lowered the sugar to 1/3 cup. I also added an extra 1/2 cup of cranberries and a handful of walnuts. They came out sooo moist, and are gorgeous with the powdered sugar on top!!! Thanks for sharing :)"
"Wow, these are super yummy! I made 1/2 the recipe for an afternoon treat today and my sis and me enjoyed them so much! They have a wonderful crisp outside with a fluffy and tasty inside. I never really liked cranberries this much, but in these scones they were so good! The sweetness is perfect and the biscuits have a great taste! Your directions are also very clear and helpful. At first I thought the dough was way too dry, but then I kept on working with it (just as you said) and it became very moist. Thanks so much for sharing this winner with us, Sharon! Will surely make it again! Made and reviewed for 1-2-3-Hit Wonders May 09."
"These are way too good. I love the hint of orange and they look so gorgeous. The 1 batch made 17 biscuits. The only change I made was to use butter instead of margarine. I'm going to make these for Easter brunch! Made for Veg N Swap 9."
"These are soo..... good. I make my own yogurt, so I'm always looking for good yogurt recipes, this one takes the cake! Made for newest tag, and so glad I chose this one. Thanks Sharon."
