Excellent basic scone recipe. It allowed for substitutions nicely. I used half white and half whole grain flours to up the nutritional value (1/2 cup oat flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry four plus 2 TBSP ground flax seed.) I divided the dough in half and put chocolate chips in one half (alas, I hate currants and raisins!)and unsweetened finely shredded coconut & chocolate chips in the other half. Mmm, yummy, and halfway healthy too. Some other suggested "additions" are: craisins and white chips, lemon zest and orange flavored craisins, hazelnuts and toffee chunks, walnuts and chopped dried apricots, coarsely chopped candied ginger and cinnamon, pecans and Kraftmaid caramels cut into fourths... use your imagination and create scones to die for!
