Oatmeal Scones

"I remember Mom making these whenever we would go camping. They are so light and flaky, and much easier than trying to make oatmeal over a camp fire."

    Thank you for sharing this scone recipe! They were simple to make with ingredients I always have on hand. I added about a teaspoon or so of cinnamon and a bit more sugar as per my family's tastes. I pressed the dough into two six inch circles and cut each into six. I sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar before baking for decorative purposes. What a wonderful recipe that is now in my 'keeper' file. Thanks again!

    This was really good. I used cherry flavored cranberries and added white chocolate chips. I would probably try to use less butter next time just to be a little bit healthy. They were good and buttery as is. Thanks for a wonderful Saturday morning meal.

    I am so happy to have such a simple and delicious recipe for my first ever attempt at making scones at home! These are not only foolproof, but they taste just like a nice bowl of oatmeal and raisins! They smelled wonderful as well baking. They were perfect with a bit of butter spread on them still a bit warm. I followed the recipe with no substitutions and I used raisins and quick oats in mine. YUMMY!

    Really lovely scones. I lowered the fat by using half the ask for amount heart healthy margarine and half unsweetened applesauce for the butter, plus skim milk. Splenda was used for the sugar and I choose to use old fashioned oats and currants. I also added a 1/2 tsp of Penzey's Cake Spice just because, lol. These are not delicate scones with all of the oatmeal and one is very satisfying with a cuppa. Delicious.
