Melt-in-your-mouth kind of scone! I've made many biscuits but it was my first time making "scones", and I have to say, it wasn't as messy as others have described it. (I followed the recipe exactly, except I used half wholewheat flour and cut the sugar to 1/4 instead of 1/3.) Comparing to the biscuits I make, the dough wasn't sticky (or messy) at all!!! (I've done a lot worse/messy work.) Instead of using food processor like others mentioned, I cut cold butter into cubes and started mixing with the dry ingredients using pastry blender (just the way I do when making savoury biscuits). As mentioned in the instruction, I thought the dough was waaay too dry at first, but as I was working with my hand(kind of "kneading" in a way I guess?), everything came together and although I was a bit worried that the scones would turn out dry, they didn't turn out dry at all! Moist and flakey, the way my family like them! I put vanilla extract and half dried raspberries and half dried blueberries. I wish I had orange or lemon, but I didn't.. I will make them again with chocolate chips, dried cranberries and orange zest, raisins, dried cherries, etc!
