Basic British Scones
I have to laugh a bit at the reviews complaining that the lack of milk and butter in this recipe make these scones "too dry." Well... that's a genuine British scone: dry. You eat them with tea. This recipe is really perfect nearly-as-is (USE BUTTER, NOT MARGARINE). The texture is nice and light, with a perfect crumb. Just keep an eye on them in the oven or they really will be too dry. My own oven can be unpredictable being a gas oven, so while I time them per the recipe I still keep an eye on the color to be a nice light golden.

Elnora's Peach Cobbler
We love this recipe, and will definitely make it again. It's far better than other peach cobblers I've tried. I did make a couple of changes due to other reviews and what I had on hand. I used half white peaches and half yellow because that's what I had; From experience with other cobblers being too cakey and dense, I sifted the dry ingredients before blending with liquids; from experience with soggy cobblers I added 2 tsp of cornstarch to the peaches prior to adding to the baking dish; and I sprinkled a very small amount of allspice over the peaches before adding the batter because there was so little sugar blended with the peaches and we like a small amount of spice to help bring out the flavor. NO EXTRA SUGAR NEEDED and the allspice I added was barely a dusting. Will definitely be using this recipe again.

Yummy Blueberry Cobbler
This was a lovely, simple, delicious recipe that I'll be making again. It was the perfect ratio of fruit to batter, as long as the fruit is spread out to one layer in the baking dish. I don't like to make major changes to a recipe the first time I make it but the reviews to reduce the sugar were so consistent that I reduced the amount of sugar in the recipe; 1/2 cup only in the batter and 3/4 cup in the topping. I wouldn't reduce it below a 1/2 cup in the batter or it would be too thin, but I would reduce the topping further to a 1/2 cup. I added a full teaspoon of cinnamon, as a couple of reviews indicated that adding more cinnamon made a very positive difference and I'm glad I did. I always think cinnamon and blueberries is a strange pairing, but it's also always a nice surprise. The last change I made was to add a couple teaspoons of cornstarch to the blueberry-lemon juice mixture, which made sure that it didn't turn out soggy as it had for a few members, and instead it made a lovely thick syrup. Because of past cobblers I've made, I sifted the flour and baking powder together. That helped the texture of the cobbler be "cobblery" but not cakey, lumpy, or heavy. I also used organic sugar rather than white sugar. I used lactose-free whole milk + a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I think that there was too much baking powder because I could taste it so next time I'll reduce by 1/2 tsp. Since I sift, b.powder isn't as much as issue.
