    Almost perfect. The recipes calls for 13-16 minutes so I put them in the oven for 14 1/2 minutes, between the min and max. I should have set the timer for 13 minutes, I thought I knew my oven better but apparently when it comes to scones, a minute makes a big difference. They still tasted great just a little too brown(crunchy)on top.

    Delicious. I made them with my 11 year old granddaughter. I had all of the ingredients and all the equipment lined up. We followed the video instructions. We each ate one warm out of the oven. I’ll made them again soon.k

    I really liked these. Didn’t have any fruit this time but the directions really helped. Usually my biscuits, pie crusts, whatever, are tough. But these directions really helped with the technique. I kept the fat and liquid really cold this time and didn’t working about mixing well, and that’s the trick.

    Fantastic if you halve the sugar and skip the sugar on top. Perfect texture and were great with frozen raspberries.

    I made these for my first attempt at making scones. I followed the basic recipe exactly and added 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/3 cup of dried blueberries. They were amazing! They were as good as any I have ever purchased. A definite keeper.
