I hate raisins so I didn’t put any in as this recipe suggested. But, I did think this was a great recipe for scones. What I loved was that I was able to make 20 smaller ones which would be a great size if you were having guests or wanted to put into a food gift basket.
Besides being very easy, they were really good. They were flakey and moist — perfect! They had a slight sweet taste and if you prefer something sweeter, you could make a little frosting to put over them.
Next time, I think I’d throw in cranberries in the mix. Someone mentioned adding lemon zest and poppyseeds. You could add chunks of apples and cinnamon. This is a great standard mixture.
**Update 7/25: I made this recipe again recently and this time, added apples and raisins. They were delicious. I didn’t make any modifications except to add 2 cups of chopped and peeled apples.
