First scones I've ever made and wow: this recipe is definitely a keeper. Followed to recipe except:
--used whole wheat pastry flour
--added about 1/2 tsp of minced organic orange zest
--used 1/2 butter and 1/2 cold (solid) organic unrefined coconut oil (processed in a food processor, as suggested by another member - thank you!)
--i love lemon-poppy seed anything, so (for lack of poppy seeds) i sprinkled about 1/3 tsp. chia seeds into the batter before kneading.
Chia seeds worked great - i would add more next time. I think I'll try adding fresh grated ginger (or chopped crystalized ginger) next time. Maybe raspberries another time. As has already been said, the possibilities are endless; this is a fabulous base recipe!
p.s. - I sifted confectioner's sugar over mostly-cooled scones instead of using icing, since i was giving them as a (house watcher) thank you gift to accompany the Key Lime Jelly gift i'd purchased while away -- i figured that sweet jelly was 'icing' enough.
