Very good recipe, but not overwhelmingly great. I found these scones to be more like biscuits (as in bisquick) in texture and flavor instead of the scones I'm used to, which is slightly drier and more firm. That may just be my prejudice due to my previous favorite scone recipe, though. Don't let my review deter you from making these - I've made several batches and I can attest that adding any of these things to the scone recipe works great: Fresh blueberries, fresh raspberries, currants, diced apple (add a little cinnamon to the recipe for apples), and maple/brown sugar topping (mix brown sugar with good quality maple syrup until a very thick paste is made, depress scone in the middle with a spoon to create a dent and fill with maple/brown sugar mixture. Bake as normal, but be careful, the mixture will run. Yum!)
