My 91 yr. old friend made these this morning, and heated them for us this afternoon with our tea. WOW! She and I have had "a cup'a" almost every week or so for the last 6 years. She is a fine baker, and often makes scones using various recipes. These were THE BEST EVER in six years! She told me where to fine this recipe, and I shall be making them for breakfast in the morning. Thank you Miss V, and thank you Land 'o Lakes. This is what scones are supposed to be.
This is a wonderful breakfast i pop it in the oven and enjoy my ride to work :3
Excellent!! First attempt at making scones and they are great. I made no changes to the recipe, other than adding a quarter cup more cranberries. Very, very easy.
This is by far my favorite scone recipe. I use it all the time. I've made a few variations to make different scones. For example, I leave out the cranberries and orange zest but add almond flavoring, slivered almonds and dried cherries at times. I'll also do something similar but with dark chocolate chips and no almonds. My friends and family love this recipe as do I!
This recipe looked so good I just thought I would like to try it.
Excellent treat for company and easy to prepare.
This is an excellent recipe for scones! It also works well with other fruit besides cranberries. I just made a batch of strawberry. I sprinkle them with sugar, and don't use the icing.
Very easy and very good. I think next time I might drizzle them with some melted white chips.
I didn't have enough half and half, so used some sour cream. I don't see how they could be any better.
They turned out perfect! Easy, quick and delicious! I used 4 TBSP of heavy whipping cream in place of half and half to make them extra rich and fattening!. I've already passed this recipe on. They make a perfect afternoon treat.
I made this recipe in my counter top convection toaster oven! It came out Fantastic! YUM!
With simple ingredients and recipe, it comes out perfect.
The great thing about this recipe was all the ingredents were things I have on hand! As the nearest store selling mandrine oranges and dried cranberries is 25 miles from home.
I made it without the frosting and it was still delicious.
These scones are terrific. My friends love them and ask me to make them whenever we are having a get together.
Cooking time should be extended to 5 - 7 minutes.

Today marks a quarter of a century for me on this beautiful planet. Twenty-five years of learning, exploring, and stuffing my face with delicious eats. And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to spend a relaxing day in the kitchen.
Even though it seems like summer may have just started, let’s face it – school is just around the corner. Even if you don’t want to think about it (or, let’s be honest here, are secretly excited to have the kids back in school), it helps to plan ahead. More ...
