"These are the fluffiest scones Ive ever made. They are so light and rise a lot, too. The key to getting them that way is to handle the dough as little as possible. You can also turn them into fruit scones by adding a desired amount of dried cherries, cranberries or raisins."

"Very good and easy! The measurements I used were 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup milk and 3/4 cup water. Thanks for sharing!"
"This was my first time making scones, and I have to say they didn't turn out for me. Maybe I did something wrong? They did not rise very much, and their centers were a bit chewy. I found the recipe directions unclear for a first-timer. The directions were to reserve some of the milk/water mixture for glazing, but how much? I reserved 2 tbs. of liquid, but the dough was too dry. Even after I added it all, the dough was still too dry. So then I added a few drops more for the dough to become slightly sticky as described. When I laid the dough on the baking sheet, I wasn't sure of the thickness of each scone. They took four minutes longer to bake than directed, and they still seemed underdone. Nonetheless, it was a nice experiment. I'll give my hand at making scones another try before throwing in the towel for good. My favorite bakery does a fine job anyway, and it's much less work! Thanks for sharing your recipe! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #41)"
"Perfect Scones. I added some chocolate chips to a few for my youngest daughter, which made her happy. I also enjoyed watching my Grandson have some with some milk :) I will defiantly make these again. Made for NZ/AUS Make my Recipe Edition #9"
"Oh boy, these were a hit for us! We wanted a sweet scone for breakfast so I added 2 T sugar, a few good shakes of cinnamon, and 1/2 c apples to the mix. I also topped the milk/water glaze with cinnamon sugar. Using 1 c AP and 1 c oat flour worked out great; the texture was preserved (wheat would have been more toothsome) and we got some fiber in. I only used about half of the milk/water combo, so maybe the oat flour is less absorbent? Anyhow, these were light, fluffy, delicious, and devoured. Thanks for posting! Made for Veg*n Swap #16, for our VIP Chef Loula!"
"Wow, these are absolutely wonderful, Loula! I've had a long standing love affair with these scones from Second Cup, a coffee shop here in Canada, and well, who needs their pricey scones anymore?! I added 1/2 cup of dried blueberries, and pressed the batter into a round, which I cut into eighths. How gorgeous and yet easy to make! Thanks for posting this lovely recipe, Loula! Made for Veggie Swap 14."
"Outstanding! I made a 4 scone amount and added 1 tablespoon of Splenda to the recipe and 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips. That all went into a small baking dish and I topper it with a 50/50 mix of cocoa and Splenda for a really wonderful small cake without the usual sugar and fat (we're not mentioning the chocolate chips here ok?). It is truly light textured and fluffy and it rose like a dream."
"Easy to make, with a nice even texture. I baked mine at 190C fan forced and they took 15 minutes to get a nice light golden colour. Thank you Lalaloula, made for I recommend tag game."
"I loved these! They have a great texture and they are so easy to make. I first served them with jam and butter, then for lunch I had one filled with ham and cheese (I heated it briefly in the micro). Thank you Loula! I will be making these again! Made for Beverage Tag June '09."
"These were scrumptious scones indeed. We enjoyed this tasty treat very much. I served them with butter and strawberry freezer jam. It doesn't get any better than this....hmm maybe toasted. The scones were big, tall, crisp, tender, flavorful and delicious. They were really quick and easy to make. I will be making these again. Thanks so much for sharing Lalaloula."
"I cant say these were the best scones I have ever made. They did not rise as nicley as my scones normally do. They did taste lovely though. I may give this recipe another go before I count it out."
