"My Grandma made these scones to take to teas and for special occasions. Her friends begged for the recipe and she wouldn't give. I think we should share gifts and these are a gift. Serve with butter, jam or cheese."

shortening or lard
1 1/2 cups
buttermilk, or as needed
I decided not to cook on a griddle, instead I preheated oven to 400 degrees and baked scones for 20 minutes. They are delicious.
This was a disaster. The dough was too dense, and to bake through a 3/4 inch hunk of dough on a hot griddle, without burning it, was beyond my culinary skills.
mmm yummy i made them flatter and i made them more round but with jam they were delicious
Just made these and love them! Baked them due to a time constraint. Divided the completed dough in half and mixed 1 tsp cinnamon( roasted Saigon) in with one half of the batch. Baked each mound as stated above. When finished baking, I dusted the cinnamon scone with white sugar and additional cinnamon and left in oven for two more minutes to set sugar. Loved both types!
These were my first attempt at making scones and they turned out lovely. I was attracted to this recipe because it looked so easy compared to the other and it was! I substituted butter for shortening and added a cup of dried cranberries. I didn't fry, but baked them at 400 degrees for twenty minutes. Delicious!
This is a keeper. I followed the previous reviewer's suggestion and baked them at 400 for 20 minutes and they came out perfect. Crispy outside, tender inside. I also drizzled a maple glaze over the top.
After following other reviews and baking instead of stovetop, I wound up with thick, doughy tastless, scones. The kids were spreading butter on them and dipping them in the sugar bowl to make them edible. I think I will stick with the Simple Scones recipe on this site.
This is exactly the recipe I was looking for and it's delicious. I baked them as suggested but will try the griddle later for authenticity. If you want a lighter scone with lots of fat, choose a different recipe. Thank you for this recipe.
