This is the best scone recipe I have found! I was using Pillsbury take and bake scones in my coffeehouse, so my customers were used to really cake-like supersweet scones. I started making artisan scones using this recipe as the base. I did add 1/2 cup of sugar, as the scones weren't quite sweet enough. Chocolate Chips Scones - Add vanilla to sour cream mixture and use mini choc chips. Orange-Cranberry - Add 1.5 Tbsp orange extract to sour cream mixture, zest of one orange to dry mixture and 2 c. craisins. Almond,Cherry, White Chocolate - add 1/2 stick of almond paste, grated, 2 c. dried cherries and 1/4 bag white chocolate chips, chopped to dry ingredients, Lemon-Blueberry - add 2 TBSP lemon extract to sour cream mixture and 2 c. blueberries and zest of one lemon to dry mixture, Apple Cinnamon - Add 3 TBSP cinnamon and 2 c. chopped apples coated in cinnamon/sugar mix to dry ingredients. Top all scones with egg wash and demarara sugar, except apple cinnamon, mix cinnamon with demarara sugar and top.
