    It was my first time baking scones in a cake pan and it was a great way. I mixed the dry ingredients with the butter in my food processor. And then poured everything in a large bowl to add the other ingredients. The scones are so yummy. Thanks Syd :) Made for your win in bargain basement tag game

    Yum, I loved these. I had quite a few of the ingredients needed in the frisge to use up but did a make a few subs. I used dried cherries in place of cranberries, yoghurt in place of sour cream & Splenda in place of sugar. My substitutions did not seem to affect the outcome of these delicious little treats. Thanks for posting!
