This recipe is amazing. So easy to follow this recipe. Scones came out perfect! Not too dry, not too soft. I followed the advice of some others and reduced baking powder to 3 tsp instead of 4. I also took some tips from another recipe and used frozen butter and grated it into the flour mixture rather than using a pastry blender. I used craisins instead of raisins, but that is just a personal preference. After mixing the dough, I sprinkled my counter with flour and pressed dough down into a circle about 8 inches around and 3/4 inches thick. Then cut into 8 triangles like a pizza pie. Sprinkled with a teaspoon of sugar instead of egg wash and placed on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper instead of greasing it. I placed them in the oven on the lower middle rack and baked for 18 minutes. They came out perfectly golden brown without having to grease a sheet or fiddle with an egg wash. I agree with everyone that this ingredient list is the best recipe, but I feel the adjustments I made based on tips from others helped to make these a breeze to make;-) Would highly recommend this recipe with those few minor adjustments!
