I don't usually care for scones as they can be very dry, but the other day a friend made some scones that tasted so good that I decided to try making some. After looking through loads of recipes I decided on this one. This recipe is so easy and the taste is out of this world delicious!!! Not a dry scone in sight with this dough. I did all mini scones and only baked them for the 9 minutes as I had read when you make scones they turn out more moist when you undercook them. It all seemed to work just fine and I now have a go-to recipe for scones!
I have made these twice now and my family absolutely loves them. I even used the dough recipe and changed it to a lemon blueberry once. It was fantastic!
