These turned out really yummy. They were not dry at all, perhaps because of the pineapple. I served them with English Breakfast tea, honey and butter. I will be making these for my next brunch.

Tried it once as written: much too biscuit crumbly and the flavors didn't mature. Tried it twice the "overnight refrig" method: texture much smoother and the flavors matured nicely.

These have a nice flavor and good texture. I suggest putting 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg in the flour mixture: it added a soft flavor that really complemented the orange and pineapple nicely.

Bake just until done, like a cake. They are then just like soft cookies, and I put frosting on mine! I couldn't taste any of the coconut- mostly orange, so maybe a little coconut extract next time. Very easy- i'll try some flavor variations next time.

I was very skeptical when making these scones because I've never had such "slop" to deal with in making scones. But these turned out to be the fluffiest and easiest scones I have ever made. I intend to use the recipe as a base for other flavors (these flavors were not the best for me).

Used bread flour instead of all purpose flour, low-fat coconut milk and pineapple mange marmelade (made locally) instead of honey. They were fabulous--Not too doughy or too dry; slightly sweet and slightly savory. I made them for a staff breakfast a couple months ago and they were a huge hit.

too doughy, not at all (texture wise) like other scones I have made. I put in some coconut extract and cardamom. I made an orange glaze for a topping, that helped, but not enough... I will not make again.

I think these were pretty good, I added some sugar and a little Garam Masala which made them much tastier. But like all recipies they are easy to change your taste. So this is a geat recipie to play with. Thank you for sharing with us.
