  1. I read all the other reviews before making these, and decided to use SR flour and only 2 teaspoons of baking powder - PERFECT! I used freshly chopped rosemary leaves from the garden and added a TEENY WEENY bit of grated Cheddar cheese to the mixture. These were enjoyed on day one as a tea time treat, and on day two TOASTED with cheese on top - see the photo! Thanks Norah's Girl - delicious scones and even nicer toasted the next day. Made for Flour Power in the Photos Forum April 2008. FT:-)
  2. Oh my. Four teaspoons of baking powder CANNOT be right. They were beautiful and the aroma was divine, but, my God! All one could taste was sodium. So salty that it transcended taste, and left the tongue with an awareness of what it must be like to be a salt-lick.
  3. Thanks, I will make these again! :)
  4. Very easy to make. I rolled them out to what I thought was very thin and then put two together. They popped up nicely and if I was just looking would've thought they were popovers of some kind. Wonderful recipe, Thanks for sharing it.
  5. These were great and easy. I used fresh Rosemary and had it with my pumpkin soup.
