"This is a very old recipe. Serve these flavorful scones warm with butter. They may be a little heavy but you can lighten them up by using an egg in place of some of the milk if you like." — Bea

A great scone! I scaled the recipe down to eight (8) and it worked wonderfully. The molasses favor is very subtle and I would almost recommend adding more. Would this change the consistency? This is not a sweet scone, so those looking for more sweetness might want to jazz it up a bit. Overall, the scones are light and fluffy and would be delicious with any preserves. Apricot comes to mind immediately!
the scones didn't have enough flavor - not enough molasses, not enough spice. they were also too dry as is; I added more milk... rather a disappointment....
These scones are very good. I decreased the cinnamon to 1/4 teaspoon for my fiance and they are still very flavorful. Easy to make- I used my KitchenAid mixer with excellent results. A quick favorite!
Best if eaten the day they are baked! Very good topped with maple icing.
These scones were amazing! I made them for some Irish friends and they loved them. Add a bit more spice and molasses and serve them with butter and apricot preserves!
Wow! Three thumbs up! Used soft marg instead of butter and delighted my vegan husband. Quick, easy and tasty. Definitely a keeper!
Everyone loved these! We made them for St. Pat's day. The only change I made was to add about 4 tbs of sugar. We wanted it a little sweeter. I will probably start making these instead of biscuits. They were moist and flaky and had a great flavor.
I just made these for breakfast, they were very good, but you dont really taste the molasses due to all the spices. I would call them Gingerbread scones.My 6yr old and husband loved them. I will make them again but alter the spices, I used my food processor on the pulse setting and they mixed up fast, baked light and fluffy. I used skim milk,and used 2Tbl molasses but halved all other ingred. they are best eaten right away.
