I used dried cranberries and more than recipe called for and I’m glad I did. Scones are soft - not quite as flaky or dense as ones you might get at a bakery, but still quite good. I like the recipe - it was easy to make and tastes nice.

Delicious. Received many compliments on the cinnamon/nutmeg flavors.

Really good but flat. Even with more baking powder they didn’t rise. I added chocolate chips and it was even more scrumptious

Scrumptious! Loved them.

Delicious and moist! I live in Colorado so it was a bit dry following the recipe and I added a little more half and half to make the dough adhere better will definitely make these again!

I made orange cranberry scones with this recipe. I added orange zest and a little juice to the mix, with cranberries, and added about a third cup more flour and they turned out so beautifully. 10/10 Would try again!

I used half the amount of baking powder, doubled the spices, and substituted 2% milk for half&half, and it worked out deliciously.

My husband kept going on and on about cranberry scones that his grandmother made. Made this one Sunday morning and it got an A+ from my husband. Easy and quick to make.

Didn't really follow instructions as I only utilised 1 cup flour and had to add in another prior to pouring in the milk instead of half half after I realised the mistake. Didn't use up all the milk as well. Regardless it turned out pretty yummy except it's not soft and fluffy but cookie like

I added the dark chocolate chips and they were delicious!

Wonderful I make them often and prefer fresh cranberries and wheat flour. They can be made the day before.
