These are amazing. They don't have the texture of the traditional scones, but they are so good. They also make the house smell amazing. I used toasted walnuts, instead of pecans. They tasted great. The recipe is a keeper.

Love the scones, hate the time to make 48 balls. Can this be done in 12 large bals instead?

Easy to make and has a lovely delicate crumb. I add 1 tsp. cinnamon and increase maple flavoring to 2 tsp. in the scones. Yum!

I have made this recipe numerous times. I love the flavor and texture. I have tried 20 scone recipes, most are dry. These were nice and crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. I highly recommend.
