    Not sweet enough. This flavor combination simply did not land.

    Delicious scones and they did rise perfectly. One tweak I did was I substituted the rendered fat from the cooked bacon for the vegetable oil. Adds great bacon flavor and moisture! I also used honey instead of granulated sugar and it worked. I thought the berries would be sweet enough and they were. Very nice recipe!

    Absolutely wonderful scones, these! I pretty much followed the recipe but did use slightly more than half a cup of Homrel's Real Bacon Pieces along with frozen blueberries! Easy to make & great eating! I'll definitely be making these again! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook recipe tag]

    This is a great scone recipe, which is why it gets all the stars from me. They rose beautifully and had a perfect texture, even though I used 1/2 white wheat flour and 1/2 spelt flour. The bacon was an interesting novelty; DH thought it was pretty cool! I didn't get a whole lot of bacon flavor in mine, though that could be because I used turkey bacon. At any rate they were enjoyed by all--thanks for posting, cookiedog! Made for Best of 2010 tag from loof's favorites!
