    Really grand scones. I used frozen cranberries in place of the dried as I like them better. The pistachio's were a very nice change from walnuts or pecans. The texture is lovely, soft on the inside with a light crunch on the outside. Relax with a scone and a cup of coffee or tea. Made for Photo Tag.
