    Inez, thanks for this great recipe. Took it camping and it was a big hit at breakfast time. It was easy and quick to put together, and the results were wonderful, tasty, scones....served with butter and honey. Thanks for this one. We didn't have any leftovers, so I will make them again to test on freezing.

    These are a delightful treat on a cold afternoon with a steaming cup of tea. I made as indicated except for the nutmeg which I replaced with cinnamon and a liberal sprinkling of allspice. I cut mine into 8 wedges. They browned up beautifully. Will make again, Thx.

    Very nice scone recipe.I was out of buttermilk,so used part milk and part sour cream.Brushed top with milk and sprinkled with cinn. sugar.I leave dough slightly sticky and just pat out onto parchment paper.This makes for a nice moist tender scone.

    These were delicious. A little crumbly, but I'm certainly going to make them again! Thanks for a great recipe.

    Made these scones for Easter. The plate was empty before long and everyone agreed that they were "the best".There will be a repeat before to long. I look forward to serving these to overnight guests. Thanks for this great recipe which is so easy to prepare and still has the best of flavor.

    delicious!!! my 7-year-old daughter wanted to make "stones" (and i was lol at her totally innocent mistake) like her stepmom does sometimes. i boiled the raisins in water for 5 minutes first, used dairy-free margarine (my daughter is dairy allergic)instead of butter, and instead of buttermilk, i used soy milk with a tbsp. of vinegar.

    Delicious, just delicious, we really enjoyed these rasin scones. I didn't have any nutmeg so I added mace instead. They turned out beautifully, light, and crisp, fluffy and flavourful. Very easy to make with very quick results. I am happy that I choose this recipe for my husband work treat. Thanks for sharing.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
