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.

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!

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.

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.
