I'm not too familiar with making scones, so my review may not be educated. The dough seemed very wet, therefore when I dropped on parchment paper with a cookie scoop, they spread and baked rather flat. Maybe I used too much liquid?? The dough needs a pinch of salt. The scones were very tender and light. Not heavy and dense. The flavors were spot on, however, I'm not sure the pears add any flavor. Next time I will chop them fairly small so as to not have chunks of clear pear falling out of the scone. I will definitely make them again doing the following... 1. Less liquid 2. Add salt to the dough. 3. Chop the pears small. Baking temp and time was right on. Adding a little butter to the warm scones help compensate for the lack of salt in the dough.
