I followed the recipe exactly and these were heavenly. I'm not a morning person, so the night before I used my food processor to cut the butter into the flour mixture. Just pulse a few times until crumbly. At this point I put it all in the refrigerator. In the morning, all I had to do was mix in the milk/sour cream and shape. I also sprinkled a bit of sugar on them before baking just because I like that crunchy top. Hot delicious scones with little effort in the morning. I usually roll my eyes when people title their recipes "the best yada yada in the world," but these just might be!
*UPDATE: Even better...I've found you can mix the entire thing, shape them, put them on a parchment lined baking sheet. and throw them in the frig the night before. Pull them out the next morning and bake. AND even more better...after mixing and shaping, you can freeze these! I freeze them first on a cookie sheet and then put them in a freezer bag. They can go straight from the freezer into the oven, obviously they will take a few minutes longer.
