Caramel Scones by June

"These were my favourite--Mum use to make them often. I always loved the melted caramel on the top. Cook time for me is usually 12 minutes."

    Very good, easy recipe. I left out the coconut. Found the dough a little sticky and had to add some flour so it would roll out. The caramel topping tastes a lot like butter tarts, yummy!

    These were absolutely yummy! My children and I really enjoyed them for breakfast. The caramely topping was fantastic and I enjoyed the hint of coconut. Super easy recipe to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    These were very nice scones, which I will make again. As others have said they are a bit like a rich baking powder biscuit, my DD thought they tasted like pancakes! I subbed 1/2 & 1/2 for the water and milk powder, which I don't have and was out of reg. milk. I used 2 1/2 TBLS of Butter, because the conversion comfused me - this seemed to be a good amount. I also left out the coconut. I baked them at 425 degrees. I liked the little spot of caramel on top, I might increase it a little the next time I make them. They were very good with coffee.

    These were beautiful scones best eaten straight out of the oven. Think next time i will make bigger holes for the caramel as they tended to run out of the scone and onto the tray. Beautiful light and airy and the outside was crunchy and crispy the way i like them with a nice hint of coconut tast on the inside.Might use a little less water next time as dough was a bit too sticky. Great recipe! thanks

    These are so wonderful Jewelies, thanks so much for sharing. I just loved the addition of the homemade caramel on top. My biscuits didn't rise much, but they had the most amazing flavour and were just incredible with a hot cup of earl grey tea. I'll be enjoying these during breakfast for a long time to come.
