I made these scones twice and they are excellent they are now my favorite.
I am 71 so have tasted a lot of scones but these are tops.
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.
