  1. Far too much whole wheat flour. It made the dough too heavy.
  2. These were good, moist and light. I only gave it a 3 though because I prefer scones that are a little sweeter. But warmed up with a little butter and honey and they were a nice morning snack. Definitely made a large amount of dough and I cut it into 12 wedges.
  3. Nice flavor, nutty but not too heavy. Made a batch with dried fruit instead of fresh, turned out great. Only complaint was they were very big. Second batch cut into 12 instead of 8.
  4. Great scone recipe. Wanted something with whole wheat and no or little sugar. Could not tell they were whole wheat and my 4 yr old daughter loved them. Used all organic ingredients and had to follow directions to sub milk and vinegar for the buttermilk as i had none. Will definitly make again. The recipe was very easy to follow. They were as good as the scones I get at Whole foods. Thanks for sharing.
  5. These were nice and I will make again. Even with the wheat flour they had a good consistency and were light and biscuit-like. I did forget to put in the brown sugar (doh!). So I just ate them with honey on top. Note that on step 3, it really isn't possible to "stir in" the blueberries. The dough is much to stiff for stirring. I had to knead the blueberries in. By the time I'd done that, it seemed like I'd already kneaded the dough sufficiently, so I just skipped step #4. I also like that this only dirtied a single bowl. I wonder if I could make a half recipe and make a smaller disk and cut into only 8 wedges? This recipe makes a lot.
