World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.
Followed the recipe to the tee, and they turned out AMAZING. Oh, I lied, instead of raisins, I used chocolate chips. So that was different. But the dough...the scone part of the scones, regardless of raisins or chocolate chips...the dough was perfect. It created the right kind of density and mmmm. Om nom nom.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
This is a great ginger cookie recipe. They are soft and delicious. The only thing I did different was use butter instead of margarine.
